Hurricane Nicole unearths Native American burial site on Florida coast


American Military News by  Shira Moolten - South Florida Sun Sentinel 11/12/2022

Hurricane Nicole unearthed what is likely an ancient Native American burial ground on Chastain Beach in the town of Stuart.

Authorities found and removed the remains of at least six bodies, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said. A social media posting from the Sheriff’s Office said detectives worked with “the utmost care and respect” to carefully remove and preserve the remains that were exposed.

They will send the bones to the Medical Examiner’s Office and then to the Bureau of Archaeological Research at the Florida Department of State.

A crowd of surfers watched as deputies from the Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission surveyed the scene. Many of the surfers have lived here for generations. They said this happens every decade.


How long before the NA demand the beach and all surrounding property be returned to them as they can build a casino and resort.
