Stories - Thundering Echo

VIRGINIA - A growing market of collectors willing to pay top dollar for artifacts is feeding criminal activity in Virginia where officials are concerned about looters desecrating history.Their main target is Indian remains.Grave sites are desecrated as looters steal ceremonial headdresses, masks, jewelry, turquoise, metal, skulls and bones.Some collectors will pay thousands to own a piece of the past, a prize to augment the decor of their home.The problem isn't just prevalent in Virginia, but is a growing one across the nation, according to a recent Conference on Indian Affairs sponsored by the Virginia Council on Indians.Like many places, Virginia has countless tiny cemeteries and burial grounds hundreds of years old tucked away in the woods or deep in fields.Bushyhead, a minister, interpreter, logger and actor, has been honored for his work preserving Cherokee language and culture through recent publication of one of his collected stories.His voice is one children still hear on language tapes as they learn to speak their native tongue.
