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.

[Your Signature]

10,130 Nancy C. Boulder, Colorado I formerly lived in Santa Clara County and know the pressure that open space is under in that ever urbanizing area. I call on you to turn down the quarry application at Juristac to engage in one bold decision to protect the right of the land and the native people who have called this land their home for thousands of years. Thank you. Dec 02, 2020
