Dear County of Santa Clara Officials,

We respectfully urge you to protect and preserve Mutsun cultural heritage by rejecting the proposed Sargent Quarry Project. The land threatened by the quarry, known as Juristac in the Mutsun languge, is of immense cultural, historical, environmental and spiritual importance to the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band. Juristac is not an appropriate location for a sand and gravel quarry under any circumstances.

We call on you to uphold the the indigenous rights of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band to maintain and protect their religious and cultural sites as enshrined in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Preserving Juristac is a necessary and significant step in addressing the historical and continuing dispossession and destruction of the indigenous peoples of Santa Clara County.

13,340 Abram C. Santa Cruz, CA For too long, the Bay Area, California, and the United States has profited from the foundational violence and dispossession of indigenous lives and lands. The Amah Mutsun's efforts to halt the proposed quarrying of their ancestral lands represents one simple, yet necessary effort at restoration and redress that cannot be ethically or reasonably ignored for the sake of corporate profit.
