About This Show
Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle.

Episode 72: Bears, Birds, and Bones
As long as 2,500 years ago, Native Americans placed the bones of the dead in giant mounds of earth in the shape of animals. The Effigy Mounds National Monument was created to protect the mounds - and the bones inside. But in 2011, a new superintendent discovered that the remains of 41 Native Americans had disappeared. In this episode, we use the term "Native American" because the story refers to legislation that uses that term. The National Park Service now uses “American Indian”.

The stories on this show and the presentation of them are like no other podcast that I listen to. I am so impressed with the story telling.
