Wopumnes Sacred Site Preservation Fund

The Wopumnes Nisenan-Mewuk Tribe have been stopped the destruction of one of their oldest sacred village sites in Placerville.   The mortars are over 12" deep.  The Tribe has been protecting this site for over 100 years. They need your help to continue the cause at this site.  Federal and California Law provides for the right of aboriginal Native American groups to have access to and protection of religious and ceremonial sites. The City of Placerville is blocking this in favor of the Casino Indians. The Wopumnes needs to hire an attorney to sue the City for protections. The Wopumnes has other sacred sites around El Dorado County.  Please donate so they can continue to put on educational presentations for the community, survey, document and preserve their sacred sites from destruction by improperly applied CEQA studies.  Your help is much appreciated.  Ho!
