Join Amah Mutsun Tribal Chair Valentin Lopez for a discussion on Tribal history, the effects of colonialism and genocide, ongoing Tribal land stewardship efforts and the effort to protect the Tribe's most sacred ceremonial site: Juristac.

Located south of Gilroy, Juristac is both an ancient cultural site and an ecologically sensitive wildlife corridor. It is threatened by a proposed open-pit mine that would remove over 40 million tons of materials, leveling entire hillsides in the process.
