abstract
Osteometric analysis of human skeletal remains is one of the most accepted forms of identification in the fields of archaeology, forensic anthropology, physical anthropology, and law enforcement. Its use aids the professional in the identification of missing persons based on classification by race, and can contribute to effective facial reconstructions. This research, being the first of its kind attempted since T.L.Woo’s 1937 study of human malars, and the only project that specifically looks at osteometric differences between American Indians and Caucasoids, is of vital relevance today. Information derived from this study, combined with existing literature, will provide an expanded practical foundation useful for identifying racial variation.
