Did Flint Dig Up Remains in a Native American Burial Ground?
This sounds like the beginning of a very scary movie.
I almost feel bad saying that, but so many horror films start with the disturbance of an Indian burial ground - the state of Michigan wants to know if the city of Flint found human remains while they were digging up city water lines.
Apparently, city contractors were doing digging in an area that is bordered by Flushing Road and Saginaw/Dupont/Court streets. Problem is, the state had reached an agreement with the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan that the digging would be done with the "proper oversight," which they didn't have.
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy has sent a letter to Flint Public Works to find out if there were any ancestral items or human remains found during the digging.
Let's hope that they didn't find anything, yeah?
