Tribe: Wind farm no threat to Ohio burial mound

By Lisa Cornwell
Cincinnati, Ohio (AP)

Shawnee tribe now believes construction of a commercial wind farm in western Ohio will not threaten an ancient burial mound, a tribe elder said during September.

The Alabama-based Piqua Shawnee tribe said last year that it feared construction of the Buckeye Wind Farm near Urbana, about 80 miles northeast of Cincinnati, would destroy the tree-covered mound. While there is no marker designating the mound as an Indian burial site, the tribe has said it is convinced the mound was built by ancestors of the Shawnee and used for burial.

Gene Park, a tribe elder, said Tuesday he was reassured that the mound would not be harmed after viewing EverPower Wind Holdings Inc.ís plans for its Buckeye Wind Farm in Champaign County.

Burial mounds were generally of an earlier period than the Shawnee settlement of Ohio, so it seems unlikely to me that the burial mound was used by the Shawnee. The people commonly known as the "Mound Builders" lived in Ohio long before the Shawnee arrived.
