BONES AND GRAVEL: Members of a geology class at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti check a human skeleton found yesterday at the top of a pit in Killins Gravel Co. at 3305 W. Liberty Rd. in Scio township. Two EMU students, Kay Volkmar and Elaine Pero, found a skull and minutes later discovered the bones while on a field trip with Prof. Norbert W. O'Hara's class. Sheriff's deputies turned the bones over to medical experts at the University of Michigan who said a preliminary examination indicated the remains are those of an American Indian buried several hundred years ago.

Indians young and old prepare for dancing (upper photo) at the second annual two-day powwow sponsored by the Ann ARbor-based American Indians Unlimited (AIU), and being held at Knights of Columbus Park on Dexter Road in Scio Township. Little Iva Anderson, 1 1/2, of Traverse City, adjusts her beads (lower left) before the dance begins and Scott Bird, 9, bites his tongue in the Saturday afternoon heat (lower right) as he goes through his dance. Besides dancing -- which begins again today at 2 p.m. -- displays, contests, Indian crafts and food will be featured from noon to 6 p.m. The participants are from all parts of Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Canada, representing Sioux, Ottawa, Cherokee, Potowatomi and Chippewa tribes. Powwows used to be an annual affair in the Ann Arbor area, but the last one previous to last year was held in 1967. (News photos by Jack Stubbs)
