  • SITES

    Sites

    This section gives, ordered by state, sites which are actively endangered, inactive sites, and closed cases. Follow the links to interior pages to learn more about the specific sites, the latest news on them, and how to help. This, as with the updates page, may only be as comprehensive as the webmaster's resources and limited knowledge permits them to be. Those who believe this web site might be a helpful tool for their particular organization or concern can help by sending news to the webmaster of endangered sites and concerns and updates related to them.

    In the Learn section will be found:

  • Federal Laws: Information on NAGPRA (the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act) and links pertaining to NAGPRA. Also here is information concerning controversy over NAGPRA. Also on this page are links to information on the 1996 24 May, Executive Order 13007 concerning Indian Sacred Sites; Indian Tribes and the Section 106 Review Process; and the American Indian Religious Freedom Act.
  • State Laws: Look here for available information on State Laws concerning burial grounds.
  • Some Preserved Sites: Grouped by state are Indian burial grounds or Indian mounds listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and others. Links take to the onsite state pages where further information is had on the sites, along with links to parks, pictures and other resources. Also here is a page for Other Mounds Found in Archaeological Manuscripts. And because, for some, "preservation" doesn't entail the transformation of a burial ground into a tourist attraction, there is also the subsection Not a Tourist Trap.
  • Some History and Culture: Here are largely links to offsite pages on Mississippian Culture.
  • Controversies Concerning Archaeology: There is concern over whether "safe" archaeology exists. Here are articles or links to articles on the debate.
