NAVAJO NATION (KRQE) - Hundreds of artifacts that were stolen from the Navajo Nation have returned home.
According the Navajo Times, the 425 items included pottery, grinding stones and tools.
The items were found in South Dakota when a man by the name of Donald B. Yellow tried to sell them.
Investigators say Yellow worked for the Indian Health Service in Chinle, Ariz., for many years and stole the items, some from grave sites.
The Navajo Nation coordinated with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to get the artifacts returned earlier this month.
