Keep the faith, I pray that our Creator of Mother Earth, will bless you and be with all of us in this time of troubled waters.
Thanks for all you are doing. I was there Sunday, and plan to come back this Sunday. I didn’t know about the emergency call on Monday. Please put me on your email list. Segorea Te is so beautiful. The very least that should be done to make a dent in the huge amends owed to California Tribes is to save this beautiful sacred site.

Our thoughts and prayers go out on a daily for everyone involved/aho
people that show respect for the ancestors is a real human being thing to do . Vallejo this is not 1850 and you can’t treat us like we’re your slaves anymore , its over . Your ego is hanging way out there , you are infected with the descease scycopathy , Your forfathers was infected with that same desease when they built this country they thought they really owned the land .When we all get to the happy hunting ground we will find out what we been telling you all along this is our land , And you have no right disrespecting us like you do.I have no problem telling you this cause I know its true.To build over a burial ground is the most disrespectful thing any human being could do to another human being .If you are only a human ego ,I understand why you have no feelings AMERICA…
Daily prayers are sent!
Stay strong all involved. We owe our support especially to the Ohlone descendants. This is their burial ground, this is their sacred site which was stolen from them when Fages & Crespi entered the Straits in 1772 despite offerings of food by the Ohlone villagers at the time. Some of the villagers’ names are preserved in “A Time of Little Choice” by R. Milliken: Nazaria Saqenamaie, Blandina Guaiamay (p.103), and Logeacse (p.131), As the great scholar Vine Deloria (Standing Rock Sioux) said, “Every society needs these kinds of sacred places. They help instill a sense of social cohesion in the people and remind them of the passage of generations that have brought them to the present…The Sanctity of Lands is the Foundation of Individual and Group Dignity.”
you are in my thoughts and prayers xxx
