Ohlone Village Walk: Cory in Salinas, CA


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.

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.
