Menominee tribe happy to see historical items returned from Ohio

KESHENA, WI (WTAQ) - A northeast Wisconsin Indian tribe is grateful to get back two eagle-feather headdresses, plus other items once donated to a museum in Ohio. 

The Columbus Dispatch said the Athens County Historical Society found the items in storage. The group sent them back to the Menominee Cultural Museum in Keshena. 

The tribe donated the headdresses, moccasins, stone tools, and other items in 1999 for a collection of Native American and natural history items at the Athens museum. 

A Menominee tribal chief reportedly bought the items in the 1920's. 

Menominee researcher Rebecca Alegria said the pieces are highly regarded by her tribe, and they're very happy to get them back.
