Likely American Indian burial site halts work in Sausalito

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

A restaurant construction project on Bridgeway
near downtown Sausalito came to a halt this week after bones were
discovered at the site.

Because American Indian tribes are known to have inhabited the area,
city officials contacted the county coroner’s office and the Federated
Indians of Graton Rancheria to handle the issue. The county coroner’s
office reported the site is likely an American Indian burial ground.

The California Native American Heritage Commission in Sacramento, which
notifies likely tribal descendants to arrange for the disposition of
remains, also was contacted.
