Rodney Harwood, Indian Country Today, has written an informative article about the proposed new NFL stadium in St. Louis which is to be built on a Native American town which thrived around A.D. 900 and is thought to have a number of similarities to Cahokia in Illinois;
 thought to be North America's first metropolis.

" "It would be like you talking about your great grandparents. This is where they lived and died, and I think that should be recognized,” said [Everett] Waller, who is a direct descendant of Osage leader Watiankah. “I understand wanting to build the stadium, but you can almost build that anywhere. I have no one that can make those mounds whole again. If this was in the Middle East, you’d have a Holy War over it. If it was Japan, they’d protect it. Sometimes it’s not a football that matters. It’s not the all-American dollar that matters. [The proposed stadium site] needs to be looked at as a sacred site that it really is." "
