Many of the items that are to be auctioned are from excavations of Indian sites.

Indian Burial Grounds Action Group supports and joins with the organizers and NAIR in the support of this protest. It is just one more example of the exploitation of our past. Some of the items that will be auctioned are pre-historic and many nations artifacts are affected.

The organizer, Kathy Wakil can be reached at 931-565-4708. All peoples, regardless of Color or nationallity are welcome and encouraged to attend. She can provide info on arangments for lodgeing etc.

It is time to stand up to those who loot our sacred sites for the expressed purpose of profit. Won't you take a stand?
