* In Seattle, Washington the famous Pike Place Market is built over an Indian Burial Ground according to historical record. This is just one of the many spooky facts about this location, no wonder people think it's haunted.

* Lampshaded in ''ZombieRoadkill''. Witches came in and burned the Indians' virgins, then cannibals ate the witches, then the government built a lab and experimented on murderers and child molesters. Then they built a cursed highway over it.

* In ''Sacred Ground'' by MercedesLackey, the book's villain invokes the trope by seeding a construction site with (stolen) Native American artifacts and arranging a few "accidents," causing the more superstitious workers (quite a few of whom are Native American themselves) to get spooked enough to refuse to continue working at the site. The book also plays with the trope in some other ways: messing around with Native American artifacts can bring on quite a bit of supernatural unpleasantness, and the ultimate source of the trouble that moves the book's plot is a burial site - albeit disturbed by erosion rather than the hand of man, which let out [[SealedEvilInACan something very nasty the site was designed to contain]].

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' ("Petergeist") parodied the film ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}''. Peter builds a multiplex in the back yard, then discovers that underneath is an Indian burial ground. He then finds an ancient Indian skull and uses it as codpiece. And then uses it to pee in. You'd think building a multiplex over an Indian burial ground would be enough to get him haunted for life, but noooo...

** The pet shop in the episode with the {{evil twin}}s from the MirrorUniverse was built on an Indian cemetery. Though, that wasn't enough to anger the spirits, as the owner, one night when drunk, [[CrossesTheLineTwice dug up the bodies, pissed on their bones]], and buried them back upside down. ** "Margorine" parodies ''Film/PetSematary'' when Butters' dad buries a dead pig (who he thinks is the dead Butters) in an ancient Indian burial ground to resurrect him.

** This is not, incidentally, an example of Native Americans practicing burial at sea; the wind farm is to be built on a shoal that's all that remains of a peninsula - where the Wampanoag buried their dead - that began to sink beneath the waves about six thousand years ago. To the Wampanoag, this is like building a power plant on top of Stonehenge.

Older works may ignore the supernatural aspect completely. For example, in TheWestern, disrespect for an Indian burial ground may lead to attacks by their very living relatives. In comedies, an Indian burial ground may be seen as the equivalent of BuriedTreasure. For example, ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'' and ''Series/PetticoatJunction'' (see below), characters actively searched for lost Indian burial grounds in hope of monetary reward or professional recognition.
