Eighty-one sets of human remains, as well as funerary objects, will be brought from the University of Michigan's Museum of Anthropology in Ann Arbor to the tribe's Nibokaan Ancestral Cemetery in Isabella County's Chippewa Township.

Another 44 sets of human remains, as well as funerary objects, will be brought from Wayne State University in Detroit to the cemetery near Mount Pleasant. And a set of human remains from the state police post in Mount Pleasant will be released to the tribe.

A "Recommitted to the Earth Ceremony" is set for 1 p.m. Friday at the cemetery.
