Yesterday, a group of indigenous elders and tribal citizens stopped bulldozers from further damaging their sacred site, Tom-Kav. The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians also filed a lawsuit and a temporary restraining order on Friday against Palomar College in San Diego County Superior Court in Vista. With these two important events a caravan left from the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Cruz to Tom-Kav to support and defend this sacred site.
