BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- As the city of Boston tries to move forward with its plan to rebuild the Long Island bridge, a Native American group is asking the city to look into the island's history of concentration camps for Native Americans.

In the late 1600's, Long Island was used as an internment camp. A place where English colonists jailed, and in some instances starved-to-death, Native Americans. A number of tribal governments are asking the city of Boston to locate and protect Indian Burial grounds before reopening the island.
