Ohlone Indian Village is under attack
Protests are taking place every morning 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the corners of Soquel Drive and Trout Gulch Road in Aptos California. Aptos Village was once an Indian Village!
"Aptos", named by Spanish explorers/settlers in the mid. to late 1700's, is going through a large transformation. The project, "Aptos Village Improvement", is taking place on an old Ohlone Village. The project will change the landscape as Soquel Drive winds its way through the Village!
Here are some pictures I took this morning. I must add, I was unable to locate an archaeologist on site, though I was told there is supposed to be one monitoring the work site! Even more important to me and some others protesting, there is no descendant from the Ohlone in our area!
If you are in the Aptos area, please come and protest with us as to what is happening to the Village!
