To our friends in the Native American community. This January 8th – 10th the Coastal Commission will be hearing the City of Huntington Beach’s LCPA which will determine the fate of half of the Sacred Cogged Stone Site here at Bolsa Chica. The landowner, Signal Landmark, has development plans for 22 houses on the site. This development will forever destroy the precious archaeology of this land. We all have seen the desecration and destruction that has been permitted to occur at Bolsa Chica in the recent past, and we must do all we can to prevent it from happening again. We urge you to send a letter to the Coastal Commission urging the denial of the LCPA. Below is the address to send your letter and sample text for you to use. Letters must be received by the Coastal Commission by Friday, January 3rd.
Mail letter to:
Coastal Commission Teresa Henry, District Manager 200 Oceangate, Suite 1000 Long Beach, CA 90802 RE: The Ridge (HNB-MAJ-1-12)
Please place in upper right hand corner of your letter: Item number W24a Application number: HNB-MAJ-1-12 Your name, and your position "Opposition to the project"
Dear Coastal Commissioners,
As an Indigenous person of this land, I strongly urge you to deny the City of Huntington Beach’s LCPA which will come before you this January. This land, known as the Ridge, is part of our Sacred Cogged Stone site, and holds a significant place in our culture and history. For many years we have stood looking out onto the site, blocked by fences, as we celebrate our ceremonies. We have watched the destruction of our sacred sites to build houses, schools, malls, freeways, farms and factories. We come together at this site, it is a sacred place for our people, in its entirety. This place is significant to our people-it holds our ancient memories and cannot be mitigated. We need our sacred places.
Too much of our culture has been destroyed at Bolsa Chica. We need these places to renew ourselves, in order to continue to survive. Our ancestors’ graves have been desecrated, our ancient villages graded away. The spirit of the Coastal Act is to protect our Coastal Resources, and these precious places. Bolsa Chica is a resource which must be protected for the present people and for future generations.
I implore you to deny the City of Huntington Beach’s LCPA and to protect our sacred site in its entirety.
