Subject: 550-year-old remains to be cremated

 From the May 8, 2001 edition of the Vancouver Sun newspaper;

 WHITEHORSE - The 550-year-old remains of an aboriginal hunter found by
 hikers two years ago will be cremated, aboriginal groups have decided.
     The three B.C. hikers who found the remains will be invited to attend
 the cremation ceremony. They were looking for sheep near the Yukon-B.C.
 border in August 1999 when they found the hunter embedded in the ice and
 touched off worldwide scientific and public interest. - Whitehorse Star
