Recently, skeletal remains of a young Native American child were unearthed during initial site work at a housing development in Santa Cruz. KB Home is attempting to build homes, driveways and a road on top of “The Knoll”, a 6000 year old Ohlone village and burial site.

Ohlone elders have asked that the sacredness of this area be respected. People from all walks of life have come together as the Save the Knoll Coalition to demand that KB Home and the City of Santa Cruz halt development and permanently protect the Branciforte Creek Knoll.
