It's hard to imagine 100 native Americans living in 19th century Salford. But it happened when Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show came to town. So what did they do here? And could you be a distant relation? One man is on the trail of the Salford Sioux:

A native American Indian "ghost shirt" is set to be sent back to its tribe from a Glasgow museum.

The move follow a campaign by members of the Lakota Sioux tribe.

The shirt has been in Glasgow for more than a century

They won the support of a Glasgow City Council committee on Thursday. Now the recommendation to return it is likely to be supported by a meeting of the full council.

The shirt is believed to have been taken from a fallen warrior at the 1890 Battle of Wounded Knee in South Dakota.

The shirt and other artefacts arrived in Glasgow in 1891 with Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West travelling show.

It was given to the city's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum a year later and has been there ever since

That is very interesting, gmc. It is a beautiful ghost shirt, I am glad it was returned to The People.

You go Raven!
