Native Americans oppose Navy construction plan

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dozens of Native Americans lined up along the Silver Strand Wednesday to protest a Navy Construction project because their ancestor's remains have found at the site 

Representatives from the Kumeyaay Indian tribes are opposing the Navy's decision to proceed with the NBC Silver Strand Training Complex. 

Kumeyaay requested that the Navy take action to preserve an area of disturbed land outside the boundaries of the National Register-eligible site.  

At the request of the Kumeyaay, a meeting is scheduled to take place on the morning of Friday, Sept. 2, 2016 between tribal leaders and NBC leadership. This meeting was requested and scheduled prior to the protest activity that occurred Wednesday.
