OUR TRIP TO FILM THE DNA LAB IN DENMARK

Ernie and Bill went to the University of Copenhagen in Denmark where Sitting Bull's hair was sent for DNA analysis and filmed the procedure along with Ernie's subsequent talk at the University. We also included some un-narrated images from our trip through this wonderful city. Dr Eske Willerslev runs the DNA lab and is the one pictured writing on the blackboard. We are very happy with our footage. Thank you everybody for helping make this happen. This pretty much wraps up filming. Now on to the editing.

Pilamaye Yelo and Thank You,

Ernie, Tim, and Bill
