Inscription.  This mound was created on December 5, 1981, when Native American remains previously held in the museum collection were reinterred. A traditional burial ceremony was conducted by Native Americans and the Treaty of Tocobaga was signed. The treaty guaranteed this mound will forever remain undisturbed. In 1993, a number of suspected human remains were found in the museum collection during an inventory. In 1994, there were tested at the University of Florida and found to be Native American. On June 30, 2007 another traditional burial ceremony was conducted, which included Native Americans from the southeastern region of the United States, and the remains were added to the mound. The ground in this roped off area is now considered sacred ground.
 
Erected by Community Redevelopment Agency and the Safety Harbor Museum of Regional History.
