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.

20,131 Daniel P. Suisun City, Ca My matrilineal roots are Tamien and I say stop the quarry and return this land to the stewardship of my cousins the Amah Mutsun! Give them their land back and let them rebuild their culture. Let them restore the abundance of native plant and animal life there and gather in traditional ways! My gratitude goes to all the Amah Mutsun and everyone involved in this effort. Apr 14, 2024

20,128 Nicole P. Aptos, CA I fully support the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band and their claim to their land. I renounce neo-colonialism in my backyard. The destruction of land for profit is always moved into Native American Land and we should do better in California Apr 10, 2024
