Ohlone Indian Bones Found At Emeryville Bridge Site
|Depiction of what's now Emeryville |
before the arrival of the Spanish in
the late eighteenth century.
The Alameda County Coroner was contacted and after confirming the bones were human, the bridge contractor notified the Native American Heritage Commission according to the report. The remains were carted off the site for safe keeping and a team of "most likely decedents" will help re-inter the remains upon completion of the bridge. The Coroner says the remains are from two individual humans.
The eastern landing of the proposed bridge is where the remains were found and a future small park there called Horton Street Landing will be the final resting place for the two individuals. The council report says the decedents team will decide the actual final burial site within the park and it will not be publicly disclosed.
