Amah Mutsun Land Trust
Amah Mutsun Land Trust

The Amah Mutsun, through partnerships and direct action, are involved in a great number of projects, studies, and exhibits throughout our territory. Some of our recent accomplishments include a successful partnership with the California State Parks Commission to designate one of our first contact village sites a State Cultural Preserve, in which we are now engaged in a high profile, interdisciplinary research project aimed at better understanding the methods of landscape management employed by the Quiroste group of our ancestors. We are likewise engaged in a number of projects at the Pinnacles National Monument, a unit of the National Park Service, including a fire history study funded by the Joint Fire Science Agency. Our active partnerships at Pinnacles NM has prompted the establishment of a MOU between the National Park Service and our tribe. This MOU, currently in draft form, will be the first such agreement in California between a National Park Unit and a non-federally recognized tribe. For the last several years, the tribe has also established a multi-faceted partnership with UC Santa Cruz - including a Mutsun Language program (both physical and online classes), a Mutsun ReLearning Garden at the Arboretum, and Mutsun Speaker Series - all co-sponsored by the University and the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band. Our deep conviction to the health and well-being of our people and Popeloutchom coupled with the successes outlined above has further inspired our actions and we are in the process of establishing a Tribal Land Trust to further our conservation action within our traditional territory. Recognizing our ability to bring creative and collaborative projects to fruition, this initiative is receiving encouragement from our many partners including noteworthy financial support from the Christensen Fund, with guidance from the Sempervirens Fund. We anticipate incorporation of our Tribal Land Trust by year's end 2012.
