Flathead County deputies plan to check out an area where human skeletal remains were found in Kalispell. Medical examiners have determined the remains belong to a Native American, and they are contacting local tribes.

A homeowner was excavating south of Kalispell this week and came across the skeleton. Deputies and tribal members will return to the site Monday to see if there is anything else there to recover.

The property owner wants tribal members to have access to the site, and honor the memory of whoever was buried.
