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.

10,650 Jesmane S. Albany, CA With fracking being banned, an Arctic freeze reahing Mexico and rising coastlines due to Arcitc ice melt--to contribute to extractive industries is tone deaf to the regular destruction of Earth brought on by human contribution to climate change/global warming. We indigenous people have been stewarding the land for over 14,000 years. No violation of green spaces and Native Nation sovereignty. Mar 01, 2021
