Original post made on Jul 10, 2009

Workers excavating earth for the new gymnasium at San Ramon Valley High School stopped work suddenly Wednesday after they uncovered human remains that are believed to be Native American. Senior Project Manager Robbie Lyng said crews were digging a trench to run a fire line around 10:30 a.m. when the remains were found - a skull attached to a skeleton.

Europeans were the first people in the Americas, as far back as 17000 years ago. That's a fact, now undisputed by archaeologists. They made their way across the arctic ice sheet. Fact

There's a lot of politics involved with so called native Americans and European "invaders." this of course stretches into illegal immigration with aztlani mexicans claiming they have native blood and thus have more of a right to be here. You may recall the Mexican illegal rallies where they carried signs saying "deport the europeans." I don't like that this native heritage dude in this article said "European invasion." it wouldve been more apt to say migration. All things are political unfortunately.
