The Alliance for Native American Indian Rights reports that while it is too late to save the Brentwood, Tennessee site from the library which was constructed over it, individuals should write, fax or email the city of Brentwood to inform them of their outrage, so that the next time the situation arises the city will know more than "a handful of Indians in Middle Tennessee care about such things."
