February 2009
Native American Times;2/27/2009, Vol. 15 Issue 8, p2
The article reports that Principal Chief Michell Hicks, leader of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, has become upset with the plans to remove just one-fourth of the American Indian artifacts from the site of an airport runway expansion in North Carolina. The Franklin airport will be expanded to make the runway safer and to accommodate larger jets but, according to Hicks, his tribe is totally opposed to the plan. It would cost $2 million to save the artifacts, an archaeologist said.
