TruthInTelevision to a point: from time to time a real estate developer in America ''will'' actually be chagrined to discover that their brand new subdivision was at one time the cemetery of a local tribe or a forgotten frontier settlement. Its also worth noting that in decades past less scrupulous developers occasionally quietly disposed of such remains in the nearest empty hole, and even the more respectful tended to gather the remains and inter them en-mass in the local public cemetary with little to no effort made to identify them. This trope, however, seems be a case of a SpaceWhaleAesop resulting in positive real world changes: These days the discovery of such sites by GenreSavvy developers not wishing to [[TemptingFate Tempt Fate]] [[note]]or at least not wishing to lose potential home buyers who don't feel like putting their own skepticism to the test...[[/note]] usually results in [[SlaveToPR very public demonstrations]] of utmost respect, proper archeological investigations, and dignified relocation or reinterring of the remains

* ''DrawnTogether'' has the episode "Ghostesses In the Slot Machines", where the cast discovers that the house was built on top of an ancient Indian burial ground during a remodeling challenge which disturbs the spirits and makes them haunt the house. To appease them, the housemates gives them a muddy patch of dirt in the backyard where the swingset used to be. The spirits wants to honor the land like their ancestors would have wanted; by building a casino on it.

* Ride/BigThunderMountainRailroad at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks is apparently built on one, according to its back-story. It's said that this causes an earthquake on the third lift hill of all versions.

* In ''Film/{{Poultrygeist}}'', what's being built over an Indian burial ground is actually not a house, but a fast food restaurant. The title is kind of giveaway.
