Dolbeare Burial Ground

One of the more difficult issues the Mohegan Tribe has dealt with over the years is the desecration of burial grounds. One such instance was when the state took control of the Shantok lands, and removed the grave markers from the George and Hannah Dolbeare family, including those of their eight children. The Museum Authority was able to locate the actual Dolbeare graves. In 2001, the Tribe replaced the grave markers back to their original locations, restoring the integrity of this final resting place.
