A minimum number of 16 human skeletons both partial and complete had been recovered during nine salvage operations labeled Exhibits A - I along the shores of lakes Bowman-Haley, Sakakawea, and Oahe. Exhibit A, 32 ME 463 Lake Sakakawea is of unknown cultural and temporal association and contained two possible adult males and one possible adult female. The predominant pathology is degenerative arthritis. Craniometric analysis indicates a possible mixed Mandan-Arikara genetic affiliation. Exhibit B Lake Oahe is possible historic Arikara and contains one male, 30-40 years one female, 22-29 years one adult of unknown sex and one juvenile, 17-19 years. Pathologies include one case of degenerative arthritis and spina bifida. Exhibit C, 32 ME I Lake Oahe is assigned to the Extended Middle Missouri Tradition and contains one nonhuman incisor. Exhibit D, 32 ME 42 Lake Sakakawea is of unknown cultural and temporal affiliation and contains nonhuman mammalian long bone fragments. Exhibit E, 32 BO 30 Lake Bowman-Haley is of unknown cultural and temporal affiliation and contains one human adult femur.
