What do you think about the Native American remains found at the high school construction site?
(question submitted by Sonya Hoseley)
It's an interesting find, but I'm surprised they found only one person. So, I don't consider it to be a ritual burial spot. Maybe some person just happened to die right there.

There have been many times over the years that Andrew Galvan has come here to identify remains. I am pleased that someone had the foresight to put a procedure in place to preserve the dignity and honor of these first inhabitants. Who knows what may have happened before this practice was begun.

I think it's neat to know what this place was like and who was here. Wherever we've been we like to know historically what went before, what the people were like, and how they survived. This area was probably a great place to live long ago.

It's always historically interesting to uncover tribal remains. But I have a hard time feeling concerned about the disposal of the remains once the archaeologists do their carbon dating.
Does anyone know what was on that property before the school was constructed? It could have been someone who died naturally, by accident, or was murdered back in the 1800s. Although that's possible, chances are it was a Native American. Was it a shallow grave at one time and later got built up, or did they have their graves six feet under?
