On this past Sunday, over 200 people attended an informational meeting on how to protect sacred burial sites. Opening prayers were given by Ohlone elders, traditional Ohlone songs were shared, and speakers included Tony Cerda, Ann Marie Sayers, Corrina Gould, Wounded Knee De Campo and Henry Dominguez.
Over $1000 was raised to support organizing efforts to protect the Knoll.
Today's City Council meeting will be held at the Santa Cruz City Hall, located at 809 Center Street in Santa Cruz, California.
