Workshop: Labor and Native Sacred Sites
The San Francisco Bay Area has many Native Sacred Sites ringing the bay, in our cities and in the rural areas. In the Bay Area, there are hundreds of sacred Shellmounds, most ancient burial grounds. They are held sacred by the original people of the area, the Muwekma Ohlone, who are still here, and other Native Americans. Development has destroyed, desecrated and compromised many of our Sacred Sites and more are being threatened on a regular basis. What are the challenges when development is proposed and/or approved to take place on a Sacred Site? How can Native cemeteries be respected and, at the same time, labor be supported? How can we work together?
This workshop will provide an historical overview of the Muwekma Ohlone, a description of Sacred Sites of the area, and information about state and federal law governing Sacred Sites.
