9,300-year-old Kennewick Man skeleton found in Washington

Kennewick Man was definitely not a Native American, according to the most recent study of the prehistoric remains.
The 9,300-year-old skeleton actually has more in common with Polynesians, according to Doug Owsley, an anthropologist with the Smithsonian Institute who released an updated review of the bones Wednesday.
Owsley found that Kennewick man's skull has several similarities to the ancient coastal people in Asia, meaning he likely shares a common ancestor with modern day Polynesians.
