I just thought I should point out that there are a
number of opposing viewpoints to the one presented
in John Stroebel's apologetic post. At the least, it
should be recognized that "locations of Native American
burial remains" and "resting places of the ancestors of
today's native people" are not the same thing.

The "reburial" issue is quite controversial.
Anthropologists are by no means unified on what to
do about it. Nor, for that matter, do "native people"
speak with a single voice on the topic.
