  1. Many thanks. I’ve heard parts of this story, but never put together like this. :/
    Same as it ever was. This work certainly helps to humanize the remains… in Indiana, where Europeans also carried out ethnic cleansing, stories like this are in short supply. The descendants of the peoples that left the bones and the sites have little to no voice even now. Particularly as the dominant culture, it’s so easy to forget, or ignore, to objectify the remains.
