    On top of everything else, we have done to the Native Americans, why not. Not covered in American news and had to dig it up in a BBC news.

    US news focused on the National Monument. This pointed out the burial sites.

    I’m betting on the Trumper response to be something like “big deal most of America is probably a burial site but yada yada something about white person neglect” or maybe a blunt approach like “sorry but illegal Mexicans are a more important issue than dead Indians. MAGA biyatch”

    I remember when I found out that cemeteries re-use land, and the majority of the cemeteries ever in the US have been built over.

    It's unfortunate, but people's history is lost every day.

    Some years back, when they were excavating in Tampa for the Hockey Arena or the Convention Center, they came across some bones from several burials. The builders were concerned (almost terrified) that they were Indian remains which would, of course, meant some sacred mystical burial ground. A secondary concern was that they were the remains of dead slaves. What would they do with that?

    Fortunately, it was determined that they were probably remains from soldiers from some old place called Fort Brooke (from before statehood). Since they were just plain old white soldiers, no one gave a spit and the construction quickly proceeded.

    Sometimes things just work out.

    It probably wasn't a confederate soldier burial site tho. If it was, we'd have the statue situation all over again..

    Sounds like the start of a Stephen King novel

    If King's story ends with something appearing in Trump's bedroom, I will read it.

    I love it when a plan comes together.
