Kumeyaay Indians say Navy building site is a sacred burial ground | SanDiegoUnionTribune.com

Dozens of Native American Indians staged a protest Wednesday morning over the building of Naval Base Coronado’s new SEAL training center on what they say is a native burial ground.

The 12 tribes that make up the Kumeyaay Nation want the $1 billion project south of Silver Strand State Beach to be moved a short distance so as not to desecrate what members call a sacred site, said Cynthia Parada, a councilwoman with the La Posta Band of Mission Indians.
