Cody Willis started this petition to Alabama State House and

People have been hunting Native American artifacts for a very long time . And for some , it has kept them out of a lot of trouble . I do not believe it is right for someone to get a fine or jailed for picking up a arrowhead that has been washed out of the ground and is laying on top of the ground . Museums display these artifacts that were donated by a person who more than likely obtained it “illegally” nobody questions it when donated but if they see you finding one all of a sudden you are the bad person in the situation. TVA wants to “preserve the history “ but yet they flooded the burial mounds with the river . Countless sites have been destroyed by the constructions of dams. They have rocked the islands up , which covered the artifacts up to never be found or seen again. They have locked artifacts up at university’s to never be seen or appreciated ever again. I don’t agree with it and believe that it should be legal to obtain a artifact that was surfaced by natural causes . I believe that they could keep it illegal to dig or disturb burials and just make the surface hunting legal . Maybe even pay to get a permit to hunt them.
