In this article the author reflects on the discovery of bones of 12 young women in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She shares that these bones have been discovered as construction workers started expanding a housing development in the area. She claims that the discovery has added to the value of the area, which has been once known as a sacred ground of animals such as burrowing owls, coyotes, quail, and foxes. Because of this, she suggests that the killing of those women should not be ignored.
