Not the Only One

I remember a burial ground that looked uncannily like this one near Salina, Kansas in the late 1950s. It has since closed.

NAGPRA

This kind of thing is one of the reasons Congress passed the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.

I wonder

I would not imagine the Indians would enjoy this rather crude display of their ancestors. This comes under the category: is nothing sacred?

Dying to get in

Another great photo example of people just dying to get into the picture.

Fountain of Youth?

Well, that seems to be a bit of false advertising. I must say the archealogists did a neat job here. Looks like they may be still uncovering some more towards the bottom of the picture. Interesting. Is this site still in existence or were the remains shipped off to some museum basement?

Fountain of Youth

looks like it's turned into a tourist trap http://www.fountainofyouthflorida.com/
