Ohlone Village Walk: Cory is Interviewed by the Santa Cruz Sentinel

In the interview with the Santa Cruz Sentinel, Cory said that he’d feel good at the end of the day because he brought awareness to an important issue and helped give a voice to the tribe. “It’s kind of upsetting there’s not more support,” Drouillard said. “Why do we go to history class if we’re just going to forget about it? I can’t just throw up my hands and give up. I have a lot of weight on my shoulders and I don’t want to let anyone down.”

What is Cory Walking For?

Through 86 of California’s coastal cities, towns, and hamlets from Imperial Beach to Smith River, California a journey of 875 miles. Cory is determined to inspire people to use their computers and cell phones and Google INDIEGOGO–OHLONE VILLAGE and support his walk that will allow the Costanoan Rumsen Carmel Tribe of California regain their sacred ancestral land that was taken from them when the Spaniards arrived on the shores of California in 1769. One hundred and thirty years later the same land was sold to a San Francisco businessman for one dollar by the United States government. The Ohlone were never given the opportunity to buy the land that was stolen from them.

Please support the OHLONE VILLAGE WALK and CORY on his journey through California.

On August 20th, Cory was seen in Salinas, CA as part of his walk to raise awareness for the Costanoan Rumsen Carmel Tribe of Monterey to build a cultural village on sacred ancestral land first stolen when the Spaniards came ashore in 1769 and then sold to a San Francisco businessman for one dollar 130 years ago.

On August 12th, Cory arrived in La Jolla, where he spent a “crucial” day walking and educating people on the situation of the Ohlone and the Ohlone Village Walk. He was interviewed by the La Jolla Light, one of the leading newspapers in the area.

“Before the Spaniards came along, (the Ohlone) were a loving peaceful group of individuals, they didn’t mean any harm to anyone, so it’s a shame (how they were treated). But it happened, that’s history,” he said. “The most important thing we can do today, now that we’re knowledgeable, is to try to rewrite that history the way it should have been written.”

Ohlone Village Walk: The Laguna Beach Independent Interview with Cory Drouillard

Go Cory! Interview after Interview! This time Cory is featured in an interview in the Laguna Beach Independent entitled Striding for a Little Known Cause 

Cory Skyler, a descendant of Lewis and Clark’s interpreter and scout George Drouillard, walked through Laguna Beach this past Tuesday on a journey nearly as improbable as that of the famous 1804 explorers. His aim is raising awareness for a campaign by California’s indigenous people to regain the sacred ancestral land that was taken from them by the Spaniards in 1769. Skyler pledged to walk through 85 coastal cities and towns where California’s indigenous people once lived, encouraging any one who will listen to visit www.indiegogo.com and pledge their support for Cerda’s people.

Please leave a comment and support Cory, the Costanoan Rumsen Carmel Tribe, the Ohlone Village and the Walk!
