Kwaday Dan Ts'inchi - Long Ago Person Found

The British Herald newspaper for June 23 is running an article entitled "Frozen body to reveal old American mysteries" about the remains of a 700 year old body that was discovered preserved in ice in a glacier in August 1999. Considering the advances a similar "iceman" found in the Italian Alps in 1991 nicknamed Otzi, academics are hopeful that this messenger from the past will help them gain a clearer picture of the British Columbia area before "First Contact" with Eurasians in the form of Russian traders approximately 250 years ago.
