Thanks Ty...

Don't live there, but would boycott it...that is horrible..

These special areas need to be protected at all costs! This is America's history...we have done so much damage to the Indians and what they actually took care of I am personally sick.

Thank you for all of the information you get out there!

"The construction of the mall unearthed thousands of human remains, many of which were taken away to a landfill in the name of consumerism, and others are kept in a library at UC Berkeley."

That is absolutely horrid..I am shocked that anyone could do that..

Thanks Terry
Sadly noted..

Yeah and the street practically next to it is even called Shellmound...but I really don't see any shellmounds left on that street. In 2 places in Oakland and in Alameda, they've found native American children's remains. We must be livng on top of burial grounds all over this area.

This is terrible! They should never have built a stupid mall there. How disrespectful.

Sickening. Good for them!

On another note, I boycott malls every single day.

Respect and consideration means nothing to businesses. It is not as if America is a small country like the USA, with land at a premium, why could the mall not have been elsewhere?

I'm saddened and grieved that this should have happened.
