Fact Vs. Fiction - Let's Get Real

Are Native American Burial Sites Associated With Paranormal Activity?

Many people are of the belief that Native American burial sites are haunted or hold a curse for anyone responsible for disturbing the sacred site. But is this true? Are Native American burial sites any more haunted than a regular cemetery? If we are to believe what we see in the movies, then the answer is an emphatic yes.

Movies like “The Amityville Horror”, “The Shining”, “Poltergeist II”, “Pet Sematary”, and many others, blamed the cause of paranormal events on the disruption of Indian burial grounds. The Amityville Horror, based off the Jay Anson book, claimed to be based on real paranormal events experienced by the Lutz family. However, according to researchers, many of the claims made in the book and movie simply aren’t true. Including the claim that the Amityville house was built on an Indian burial ground.

The truth is, Many Native Americans consider burial locations to be sacred and feel the ancestors’ spirits are still present on the land. Although there has never been any documented scientific evidence of hauntings or curses being attributed to Native American burial grounds, that doesn’t mean it can’t be true.

For many Native American tribes, desecration of the dead meant the soul of the deceased would remain earthbound and trapped in limbo. People began to believe that these earthbound spirits would avenge any desecration by haunting and tormenting the land holding their spirit. If this is true, then it would be natural to assume that a new housing development or commercial center built on a Native American burial site might be more subject to paranormal activity.

Not all Native American cultures practiced the same ritualistic ceremonies for those who passed. Some tribes buried their dead in large ceremonial mounds. Many tribes didn’t bury their dead at all. Some would place the bodies on high-wooden platforms or in trees, other would burn the remains in a cremation ceremony, and still others would place the body in a lake, river, or some other location that held special meaning.

There are sacred Native American burial sites all throughout North America and the world. It can be difficult to locate many of these ancient burial sites, especially the smaller ones. This is one of the reasons we still hear of construction projects unearthing burial sites. Prior to protection laws being established, we don’t really know just how many of these sacred sites were desecrated by construction. It is possible that a reportedly haunted location may be sitting on a sacred burial site, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the burial site is the cause of any alleged paranormal activity. If you are conducting an investigation, do a little research and see if you can dig up any area history on the presence of Native Americans. Also keep in mind that sacred Native American sites and places aren’t strictly limited to burial sites. There are also ceremonial sites.
