Petition to Santa Clara County:
Protect Amah Mutsun Sacred Grounds from Proposed Quarry

Protect Juristac

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 Right of the 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.

6,310 Dina E. Capitola, CA I participated in the 9/8/19 “Walk for Juristac” and can attest to the power of the land and of the Amah Mutsun people. I marched alongside hundreds—including a large contingent of Amah Mutsun youth, adults, and elders—and it is clear that those of us who are not Amah Mutsun must respect the will of the people of the land to maintain the integrity of Juristac as the sacred site that it is. Thanks! Sep 16, 2019
