Save the Knoll - Respect Ohlone Sacred Places
Sunday, August 14th

In the first week of August, the burial of a young Native American child was disturbed during initial construction at the KB Home development at Market and Isbel. KB Home is planning on building 7 homes, with driveways, within a known 6,000 year old archeological site on the knoll in the northern section of the 32-home development.

Ann Marie Sayers, the Ohlone woman in charge of the child's re-burial, has recommended that there be no more earth movement or development within the culturally sensitive area. We are gathering to demand that KB Home and the City of Santa Cruz honor Ann Marie Sayer's recommendation and take action to protect the knoll.

This Sunday, we will meet at Laurel and Pacific at 12:30pm to march through town raising awareness of the desecration. This march will be followed by a gathering at Grant St. Park at 2:00pm.

No development on the knoll!

Please help spread the word! The situation is urgent and we are having to organize on a very short timeline.
