Perham, Minnesota (AP) -09

Authorities say human remains found near Perham appear to be the old remains of a native American.

The sheriff’s office in Otter Tail County says little more is known about the person so far.

The remains were found Aug. 27 when a utility company digging along Big Pine Lake near Perham unearthed a human skull.

The state archaeologist office is collaborating with the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council to identify the remains.

Custody will eventually be transferred later to the Minnesota Indian Affairs council.
