Oh. Oh, oh, oh.
Please show all respect. This is sad.
In a perfect world the burial site would be a place to visit and learn. The Carmel Mission has Native Americans buried with markers indicating who they were. It's repectful and enlightening.
Overbuilding needs to stop in Palo Alto and Menlo Park.
If there even is an organization called the Native American Historical Society it certainly has no jurisdiction over the remains of native people in California. That should read "the Native American Heritage Commission" see Web Link
I'm kind of curious to know how the determination that these were Native Americans was made. Would have been nice if the article mentioned something about that.
Given that Indian tribes lived here for 1000s of years there must be more than a million skeletons lying around in the area.
Most were probably eaten by scavengers or rotted
-those left should be removed and buried in a cemetery.
Was there anything to suggest that these remains were something out of the ordinary?
Given the location, I would assume they are Ohlone.
I don't know for sure if it still is open to new burials, but ther is an Ohlone burial site in southern Fremont, off of Mission Blvd.
This article is a reprint of the police press release. If the police don't even know the name of the agency to contact concerning Native remains, are we sure they didn't end up in some hobbiest's garage?
