The Native American rights fund, Colorado Commission on Indian
Affairs and the tribe have scheduled a news conference at 2 p.m.
Monday at the fund's office in Boulder.
They say they want to raise awareness about Native American beliefs.
A bald eagle without a head, talons or feathers was found wrapped in a cloth over Memorial Day weekend.
State authorities were concerned the eagle might have been poached and its parts sold on the black market.
They learned that an Indian man who had a federal permit to use
parts from dead eagles for religious purposes had performed a
ceremony.
