Thank you for Erin Malsbury’s cover article “Tall Wonder” (GT, 12/1). The Amah Mutsun helping in Big Basin’s revisioning process is vital. Please check out our Santa Cruz Gives portal (https://santacruzgives.org/nonprofit/amah-mutsun/) to help educate our community, students and tourists about the many amazing contributions local Indigenous People have to offer us—if we can learn to listen. We want to create a “talking” (QR codes and website) art mural on Mission Street with individuals like Chairman Val Lopez and youth members deciding content. Honoring the earth is life-enhancing for all ages and all who reside on this sacred ground. The new mural will help accomplish this and many other goals we have in mind. Happy Holidays!
