Human Remains Return to Hawaii
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
HONOLULU, HAWAII—The University of Texas at San Antonio will return the skulls of a Native Hawaiian man and woman to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs’ Kia’I Kanawai Compliance Enforcement Office. The skulls were donated to the school by the son of a U.S. Air Force airman who took them from the island of Oahu sometime between 1940 and 1960. The remains ended up in a box in the airman’s garage and were discovered after his death. They will be reburied in Hawaii.
