REINHARD from page 1
on the Omaha and Ponca repatriation
projects by the university administra
tion, even though his primary research
interests were in other areas.
Reinhard said he considered the
work service to the university.
He also said he worked to create a
positive image of the university and the
anthropology department to the Ponca
Tribe, because fighting existed between
the two entities before he came.
Reinhard said he worked with for
mer Vice Chancellor for Research
William Splinter to secure grants to
study die remains and did nothing out
side of UNL or NAGPRA policy.
“Ultimately, it was the university’s
policy, not mine, to repatriate these
remains,” Reinhard said.
Reinhard said his published
research predated the work he did with
the Ponca tribes.
Charges that indict Reinhard for
transmitting unethical values to his stu
dents and providing a hostile environ
ment aren’t founded, Reinhard said.
In its report, the committee wrote
that the majority of Reinhard’s work
extended beyond establishing tribal
affiliation - which is outside the bound
aries of NAGPRA without tribal per
mission. It said Ponca members raised
objections to his destructive testing.
The committee also wrote that ribs
found in Bessey Hall room 109 in 1997
were wrongly kept in the room and that
there was not enough proof the bones
were kept in the room for forensic pur
poses, like Reinhard said. Forensic
bones are not subject to NAGPRA.
The committee a,lso wrote tjiat
Reinhard had positive reviews, even
though dissent from the American
Indian community existed.
It wrote that Reinhard’s grants and
publications based on research they
found illegal was “encouraged and
applauded by... the university.”
In the judgment that Reinhard
transmitted unethical values, the com
mittee said he didn’t do all he should do
to model ethical standards to students
The committee said he co-published
many articles with students and
involved them in his research.
The committee also said Reinhard
contributed to a hostile environment
within his department. They said he
threatened legal action and physical
harm to students and colleagues.
The report also states that Reinhard
did not take part in his defense.
Pamela Starr, chairwoman of the
committee, said she wouldn’t comment
on the report Susan Miller, die faculty
member who co-filed the complaints,
said she would not continent.

“The words that people use still
are not welcoming,” he said. “Words
like fag and queer make it clear that
GLBT people are not welcome.”
People aren’t careful about what
they say because either they don’t
know a gay, lesbian, bisexual or trans
gendered person, or they don’t realize
they know one, Williams said.
On the other hand, sometimes
those people don’t want others to
know about their sexual orientation
because of negative words and
actions, he said.
“People are afraid of what others
will say if they find out, so they don’t
let people know they’re gay,” he said.
Kristin Grosskopf, chairwoman
of die selection committee, said there
are still many obstacles to overcome.
“There’s a lot of hate and igno
rance out there,” said Grosskopf, a
graduate student at UNL.
“Institutions are set up to exclude gay

fits is an example of how members of
the gay community don’t have equal

ple take for granted, that their spouses
can have medical benefits at a reason

Williams said there have been
many changes for him and the univer
sity since he came here 35 years ago.
He said he didn’t even understand
what issues surrounded being gay,
lesbian, bisexual or transgendered
when he came to UNL.
Williams said he plans to continue
working for the rights of others.
‘Teople whose sexual orientation
isn’t the same as mine, don’t enjoy the
same rights as I do,” he said. “I’m

Masked man robs store
A demand for money Sunday was
proved to be all trick and no treat for a
Shop EZ clerk.
A man entered the Shop EZ, 3735
N. 70th St., at about 10:40 p.m. and told
the 42-year-old employee cleaning the
soda fountain that he wanted the store’s
money, said Lincoln Police Ofc.
The employee turned around and
saw a man in some kind of Halloween
mask and at first thought it was a joke.
When the robber pulled out a mili
tary-style knife and pushed it up
against the employee’s ribs, the clerk
realized the demand was real, Finnell
The man, described as about 4 feet
5 inches tall and wearing a dark jacket
and blue jeans, left with an undisclosed
amount of money, Finnell said.
Police have no suspects at this time.
