When a newspaper reporter sees Indians from Iowa's Meskwaki tribe apparently digging up graves in a pioneer cemetery, he learns things are not what they seem. The reporter, an Indian himself from Arizona, begins a search for a thousand-year-old artifact stolen from nearby ancient Indian mounds. When he finds it, he encounters a collector willing to kill to keep what he'd dug up. This short story was originally published in the Wapsipinicon Almanac. The cover illustration is by artist Laura Jean.
