DEADWOOD, SD -
A Roman Catholic priest, a Taoist master and a Lakota holy man joined forces to help rebury 130-year-old remains uncovered in Deadwood.
The remains were discovered in 2006 by workers dismantling a retaining wall in a Deadwood neighborhood. They were identified as being either an American Indian or Chinese man. The Chinese worked in Deadwood's gold-mining industry years ago.
The remains were reburied Wednesday in Mount Moriah Cemetery. There was a traditional Catholic prayer and scripture reading, followed by Chinese and Native American burial rituals.
Deadwood Historic Preservation Officer Kevin Kuchenbecker says he's not aware of such a ceremony ever happening before.
