Rally at controversial Racine burial mound

By Jaclyn Brandt. CREATED Nov 5, 2013 - UPDATED: Nov 5, 2013

RACINE - Protesters are gathering at a controversial piece of the Racine Mound Cemetery.

Recently, a portion of land was sold to a local family. Members of the Native American community oppose the sale because they believe the site is a Native American burial mound and is the final resting place of their ancestors.

A team of archaeologists were going to survey that site and take soil samples, but protesters showed up and the project was put on hold.
