Sacred Ground

Near where I live is a sacred burial ground that was once used by the Pottawatomie native Americans. It was also the area where the settlers first inhabited the town that I live in. The transfer of land was peaceful unlike much of the settler land that was taken by violence. White people and Pottawatomie people actually lived together as neighbors. A dear friend bought this land many years ago and made an historical park that would commemorate both people groups. Here are some scenes from the park.
