Tongva Burials Threatened...from Tongva member
Cindi Alvitre—

"We have some very sad news...there is ongoing
desecration of graves going on at the
L A Plaza (Olvera Street)'s never f****in ends.
As the New Mexican cultural center is being put in
our relatives are being literally yanked out of the
ground! We seek support!!

The Native American Heritage Commission
has been involved in this with little cooperation
from the Los Angeles County
Coroner. The forensic anthropologist claims
that these are no Indian burials, although
burial goods reveal otherwise—
close to 100 burials impacted to date!!!

“'s about respect of all people.
This cemetery is not limited just to
native people, and destroying a massive
cemetery in a historic district to
put in a fountain for a
NEW cultural institute is obscene.”

"When crazy people call you crazy,
you know you're sane.
When evil people call you evil,
you know that you are a good person.
When lairs call you a liar,
you know that you are truthful.
Know who you are and
don't let others tell you who you are."
- Dave Kitchen
