Preserving Native Heritage

From Our Cathedral Simpler Living Creation Care and Sacred Ground in Action (SGIA) ministries:

Sometimes we are blessed with a serendipitous opportunity: in this instance we can act in solidarity with our indigenous sisters and brothers by supporting an ecosystem they have creatively stewarded for many centuries. The Chumash  (pronounced Shoo – maa- sh) Heritage National Marine Sanctuary is the first tribally-nominated National Marine Sanctuary in the nation. The proposed sanctuary “would provide a biodiversity protection gap between Monterey Bay and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuaries, urge development of research programs that address the impacts of climate change, encourage community science, and elevate the use of Tribal Ecological Knowledge to enhance ecosystem-based management, protect the Rodriguez Seamount, and protect local water quality.”
