Archaeologists vs. casino

Archaeologists oppose Quechan casino planArchaeologists with a regional museum have joined the protest against the Quechan Indian Tribe's constructing its next casino on what some tribal elders and researchers consider historic and sacred land.

Leaders and archaeologists with the Imperial Valley College Desert Museum Society near El Centro have petitioned the Quechan Tribal Council to stop construction, stating that, "To destroy this site runs counter to Quechan tribal policy of protecting the cultural past of its tribal lands."
