A Memorial Proposed for Bemidji Pamida Site

(AP)  The closing of a Bemidji store has revived an old wound.

During the construction of an addition to the Pamida store in 1988, the skeletal remains of 22 people were uncovered.  The remains were determined to be those of Dakota Sioux.  Elders said they should be reburied where they were found.

Now that Pamida is shutting its doors, members of the Native American community say the building should come down, and a memorial erected at the site.
