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.

14,700 Kira S. San Francisco, California We are actively trying to make amends for the land we have possessed here in California. This sends a strong message that we do not care about the Mutsun cultural heritage and will render other words and efforts ineffective. I am proud of Santa Clara County officials for the work they have done thus far and believe this is another win we can have if we reject the current Sargent Quarry proposal. May 11, 2022
