The Knoll is sacred land, which should be preserved. It should not be desecrated for some fast cash for the City of Santa Cruz and a predatory, unethical developer.

The business smucks have already been desecrating graves in Emeryville isn't that enough disgrace for them for this lifetime

I'm a member of the Amah Mutsun Tribe of San Juan Bautista, also an Ohlone Tribe. Born and raised in Santa Cruz until 8 years ago when we moved to Oregon. Please leave these sacred grounds alone!

we must all insist that the law of common decency is stronger than the laws supporting business profit.

We have enough substandard KB (& other developer's) houses sitting vacant across California. There is more value in preserving the sacred burial grounds & the natural beauty of the land.

I'm from Santa Cruz and we do so little for the Native community that once thrived there. Also, I've seen to many open spaces turned into ugly housing developments and shopping centers, something I expected Santa Cruz to be above doing.

One of the issues within this nation is its lack of respect for its true foundation which in essence was established way before our "founding" fathers. In light of the sacredness of these grounds and the people for which it stands, let us stand truly as one nation united under God. Allow this land to rest.

being of Mexican decent, half Mexican Indian, and Spanish. Stop messing with indigenous people. They, we, have suffered enough.

Would you build on your ancestors graves? I think not. We bend over backwards to assure rights to those who are not born here. Let's do as much for the original people. I have also heard some pretty strange stories about people living on top of sacred ground. They don't stay too long.
