Ancient Baby DNA Suggests Tie To Native Americans

NEW YORK (AP) — The DNA of a baby boy who was buried in Montana 12,600 years ago has been recovered, and it provides new indications of the ancient roots of today’s American Indians and other native peoples of the Americas. It’s the oldest genome ever recovered from the New World. Artifacts found with the […]

This undated photo provided by researcher Sarah L. Anzick shows a nearly-complete projectile point, top, a mid-stage point made of translucent quartz and an end-beveled rod of bone from a Clovis-era burial site found in 1968 in western Montana. Scientists have recovered and analyzed the DNA of an infant who died more than 12,000 years ago and was buried at the site where these artifacts were found. By comparing the boy’s genome to those of present-day people, the research showed that many of today’s Native Americans are direct descendants of the population the boy belonged to, and that he is closely related to all indigenous American populations, especially in Central and South America, the researchers said. The DNA analysis was reported online Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 in the journal Nature. (AP Photo/Sarah L. Anzick)

Radioactive Waste From Bakken Oil Fields Sent to Montana Landfill

The state’s role as host to radioactive waste has some residents concerned that it could lead to future health issues.

Known as the Oaks Disposal Services landfill in Lindsay, Mont., the
