To whom it may concern:

The coordinated, calculated, clandestine policy of suppressing knowledge of Native American Indian sites is to my mind an injustice that needs to be corrected.

As a starting point to change this culture, which I feel materially diminishes the importance of our shared California history and heritage, I am posting short articles on the attached Travelogue/Blog at

I believe the public needs to experience these sites in order to understand their importance and relevance to our lives today.

As for the potential “vandals” that seem to so concern those opposed to my efforts, at least they can be prosecuted for their crimes when discovered, unlike those development interests who destroy these sites with permission from all the “stakeholder” agencies involved.

The greatest threat I perceive to these sensitive locations is ignorance and bulldozers, not necessarily in that order.

yours truly,

James Benney
