GPR Report Update Statement

During the week of October 16th, a forensic excavation was conducted in the basement of Drexel Hall to further investigate an eyewitness testimony of potentially unmarked graves. Mahpiya Luta - Red Cloud is thankful for the eyewitness's courage to step forward and share their testimony.
The purpose of the forensic excavation was to investigate two anomalies that were found through ground penetrating radar technology in May 2022. In October, the excavation team investigated the entire area surrounding the two anomalies by digging and surveying the soil. The first anomaly was related to building products (mortar for laying bricks and nails). The second anomaly was related to animal activity (several places where rodents burrowed). The FBI and community members were present and involved throughout the duration of the soil survey.
To be clear, no human remains were found in the soil survey.
There will be an official report produced by the excavation team led by Marsha Small (Northern Cheyenne) and her team at Ohio Valley Archeology, once a final examination of soil samples from the site has been analyzed. As soon as the report is made available to us, we will post it here and make it available on our social media.
