"Lyla June & Desirae Harp: Benefit Concert for Juristac"

We are excited to raise resources and awareness for #ProtectJuristac, an Amah Mutsun sacred site in what is now called Santa Cruz, CA. Join us for a concert, native art auction, food sale, speeches by local leaders and community dialogue. The Amah Mutsun have long been engaged in the effort to protect Juristac from a proposed gravel mine/quarry. We must join together across ethnicity, class and creed to reject the ethic of environmental destruction in the name of commercial profit, especially if that environment is spiritually significant to Indigenous Peoples. Please join us for a meal and consider our suggested $10 donation for entry to this important community event.


6:00-6:45 -- Dinner and Art Building

6:45-7:30 -- Concert and Speeches by Amah Mutsun Tribal Members

7:30-8:00 -- Community Mobilization & Dialogue
