Native Americans, through the court demanded to pay the ancestor’s remains for reburial .
DNA analysis 10600-year-old remains discovered in Spirit cave, Nevada, showed that they belonged to an ancient Indian, not paleoamericans, as previously thought.

The mummy the Spirit cave discovered in 1940, and in the 1990s, when information about it was leaked to the press, the local Indian tribes Shoshone and Pautov wanted to take the remains of the ancestor, and bury it in accordance with their customs. The scientists refused, citing the fact that genetically the mummy can be paleoamericans, not Indian. The trial lasted almost 18 years. As the DNA analysis confirmed the Indian roots of the mummy, it was necessary to give the indigenous people.
