Native American Groups Plan Capitol Rally Against Effigy Mounds Bill


Native Americans are scheduled to protest at the state Capitol on Tuesday over a bill that could affect protection of effigy mounds.

Several critics spoke at a town hall meeting held by Republican state Sen. Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield on Monday night in Pewaukee. Kapenga's measure would require the Wisconsin Historical Society to let property owners investigate whether mounds on their land contain burial remains and if not, develop the land.

Historian Thomas Sobottke said property owners have a responsibility to maintain artifacts.
