Wait a minute, Do you mean American Indians? There are millions of Americans who can claim to be Native Americans, not just Indians.

I can see what the illiterate writer of this article wants to be anonymous; if he or she knew anything about Apache culture, he or she would know that most Apaches do not believe that human remains should be moved...not even when it involves returning the remains of Geronimo, which are "owned" by the Skullduggery club (or whatever it's called) at Yale.

Why are they removing their remains? So if a cemetary sells their land, do the families of the persons buried out there have to come claim them and move them somewhere else?

not even the dead can rest in peace...those Gila National Forest guys think they know it all....have you ever been to one of their houses? They have a pretty good collection of indian artifacts...the next time I am hunting and see a green truck go down the path with a forest sign on it will be open season...
