BOISE — The ancestral remains of some indigenous people found in Idaho are going to be returned to present day Native American tribes.

Some of the remains were found in a small cave in Montana in the 1920s. A second discovery was made in the Boise National Forest in 1989.

Federal officials say they’ve contacted five tribes from the Blackfoot, Salish Kootenai, and Cheyenne tribes in the area to begin the legal process to return the bones according to the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.

That act was passed in the early 90’s and since its inception about 180,000 remains have been identified. Officials say about 30% of those have been returned to the indigenous community
