This is the Presidio site where they plan to build a playground over the sacred burial grounds of the Muwekma. (The left arrow from the words "Tidal Marsh" in the picture points to the location of a "shellmound" discovered in 1912.) The National Park Service knows about this burial site, as well as other Ohlone finds nearby. And the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act should stop the playground in its tracks.
