"According to oral history, an overconfident shaman came into conflict with the powerful creature Thunderbird, who turned him to rock and split him in four pieces."
Good frickin' grief.

why should the province pay? If they want it as a private burial plot let them buy it. Or the developer wanting to do the right thing should just give it to them........lol

Nope and I don't believe in any of that either.

The thing is that the Natives and the developers both want the province to give the site an appropriate designation so that development on it is prohibited. That might not happen if the developers end up losing the land due to bankruptcy or something like that.

And as for why the province should pay, it would be either the province or the feds that probably didn't keep track of the land properly and allowed the developers to buy what they'd later find would be a pig in a poke.

Besides, the article itself points out that the site where a bunch of non-Natives died in a plane crash was designated as a memorial site. So why is it such a big deal that the Natives want a burial site of theirs to have the same designation? Would this be an issue if neglect had led to developers potentially building on a graveyard full of white people?
