VALLEJO, CALIFORNIA - On Monday, Day 12 of the occupation of Sogorea Te sacred burial site, the standoff continues. American Indians from various tribes in the San Francisco are opposing the construction of two toilets and 15 parking spaces at Sogorea Te.
Though the San Francisco local media reported a federal mediator has been called in to help bring a resolution to the standoff, neither the officials of Vallejo or the federal mediator were talking to the American Indians at Sogorea Te.
Construction Crew Mark Site
Even with the protestors at Sogorea Te, construction crews were there spray painting and placing flags to indicate where a city water line is. They were marking off where a cyclone fence will be erected along the shoreline.
American Indians from the San Francisco Bay area gather at the 3,500-year old Sogorea Te sacred burial site, which contains ancestral human remains, several times each year to hold ceremonies and oppose any further development of the site.
American Indian protestors plan to attend the next regularly scheduled Vallejo City Council tonight at 7:00 pm.
