Call to Action:
March to City Hall from Mission Santa Cruz
Protect the Ohlone Burial and Village Site at Branciforte Creek
Monday, September 19th
Meet 9:00am sharp to march
Mission Plaza: 103 Emmett St. (at Mission St) beside Holy Cross Church
KB Home, a housing developer, is attempting to push forward with planned construction of seven new homes on the Branciforte Creek Knoll, an ancient Ohlone village and burial site in Santa Cruz.
On Monday morning, a closed meeting is scheduled at City Hall with KB Home, the City of Santa Cruz, and Ohlone elders. We believe KB Home and the City are preparing to defy the anticipated recommendation of Ohlone elders that the entire Knoll be preserved as a sacred Ohlone site. After arriving at City Hall, we will remain outside holding a vigil for the duration of this 10am closed-door meeting, awaiting the result.
Join us to demand:
- That the Ohlone Elders’ requests be honored and acted upon
- A public City Council meeting regarding the Knoll before any City decision is made
- Permanent protection of the entire Knoll as a sacred site through a cultural easement
