Wisconsin Effigy Mounds, Sacred Sites

A group of Republican State of Wisconsin Senators on working on amendments to the Wisconsin Burial Protection laws that will seek to eviscerate the current law.  If this action becomes law many locations containing known effigy mounds and potential Native American burial sites will be threatened with destruction.  The amendments being proposed are due to the special interest of a single quarry plant operator in McFarland Wisconsin.

I have created a short photo application showing some of Wisconsin's Mounds.  Some of these mounds are very  similar to the ones immediately endangered is these amendments pass into law.
