Pact signed

FORT RILEY, Kan., Apr. 12 - A new agreement signed at Fort Riley is
intended to help safeguard the remains of any Pawnee Indians who
may be buried on the Kansas Army post grounds.
The pact was signed yesterday by Major General Freddy McFarren, the
Fort Riley commander, and Robert Chapman, president of the business council
of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma. The agreement makes official what was
ordered by Congress under the Native American Graves Protection and
Repatriation Act. A team of archeologists is identifying and studying
historic sites on the 100-thousand acre post. Team leader Dick Shields says
they've surveyed about half the land - so far finding 217 prehistoric
archeological sites. He says Indians lived on the land for eight-thousand
years so the possibility of finding burial sites is high.
