- Amah Mutsun Walk for Juristac
San Juan Bautista, California 95045
WALK WITH US— Juristac, the sacred ceremonial grounds of our tribe, is currently threatened by a proposed 320-acre sand and gravel mining operation. To gather strength as we organize to stop this destructive project, we will walk 5 miles together in the footsteps of our ancestors, from Mission San Juan Bautista to the eastern edge of Juristac (Sargent Ranch.) All who wish to stand with us for the protection of our sacred land and the wellness of our future generations are invited to participate.
WALK for Juristac
Sunday, Sept. 8th
Meet @ Plaza Square, San Juan Bautista State Historic Park
Anticipated end time: 6pm
Please RSVP below
You can also donate here to help cover the costs of this mobilization.
People of all ages and abilities are welcome. You can walk part of the way, the whole 5 miles, or only join for the opening and closing gatherings.
Please arrive on time and bring your own snacks, sun protection and water bottle. Dinner will be provided.
Accessibility info: the walk route is mostly flat and level, on bike lanes and road shoulders, except for one section near the end at the San Benito River crossing where there is a dirt trail with uneven terrain (shuttle will be available to get around this section.) All the walkers will be in one group led by tribal members. There will be support vans, so that walkers can step out and rest, or rejoin the walk, during periodic stops. The opening and closing sites are grassy open spaces adjacent to paved roads; access to the closing site is via an unpaved driveway at Betabel.
The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band is comprised of descendants of the indigenous peoples taken to missions San Juan Bautista and Santa Cruz.
