Husahkiw’s Wind Caves houses a rare and magnificent auditory and geographical features, multi-pigment rock paintings, sacred springs and ceremonial sites held in sacred regard by Chumash peoples, past and present. The gun club activity is inconsistent with Cultural Traditional Properties and Forest Service visitor activity. We are under constant gunfire and the lead, arsenic, copper and other chemicals have turned this mountain into an industrial contamination site.

      The whole Earth is a Chumash Wind Cave...we have known 200 years of constant assault against Mother Earth, and she is asking for non-native peoples to wake up to the Sacred again and learn to walk with respect for the Ancestors and future generations.

      We protect religious sites of other religions. Even though we, as white people, have taken their land, should recognize that we have an obligation to make their religious observance safe and respected.

      I am signing this petition to add support in protecting a sacred ceremonial site for the Chumash peoples, and for Mother Earth - to protect her from environmental degradation and toxic exposures (gun club) to both our animal relations, the Chumash peoples who pray at the site. I stand with all indigenous people in protection of our sacred sites.
