Nemadji Wisconsin Point Burial Tour

Ever wonder what happened to all the remains from the old Indian cemetery on Wisconsin Point? According to this YouTube video, over 100 burials were “dumped” along the banks of the Nemadji River at the St. Francis Cemetery in Superior. Their bones and artifacts crop up to this day as the banks continue to erode.

This is again a possible reminder of how our indigenous brothers and sisters were treated not just during their lives but after as well.  Dumping brush and clay on an eroding sacred site?  F'ing baffling.  Also somehow fitting.

Ugh.  I feel sick.  Some assholes have no respect.

Wisconsin Public Radio's Mike Simonson reported today that the federal government might return part of Wisconsin Point to the Fond du Lac band of Ojibwe.
