Nashville floods expose robbing of ancient graves

By Albert Bender
Nashville, Tennessee (NFIC) September 2010

Just coming to public attention is the long ongoing robbery of ancient Native American graves on the banks of the Cumberland River that courses through the middle of Nashville.

Floods during May have focused new attention on the looting because the rushing waters exposed many previously unknown remains. The grave robbing is being perpetrated at its worst in the Bells Bend section of the city according to local Native Americans, area residents and archaeologists. All have expressed outrage at the continued looting of ancient burial sites.

“How disrespectful it is to continue looting the graves of Native people. Those who do this continue to rape the land and take from the dead” said Melba Checote-Eads, a member of the Oklahoma Muscogee Creek Nation, now living in Middle, Tennessee.
