Tribes seek a compromise as protest at burial site continues

Two tribes are seeking to resolve a dispute at the Glen Clove burial site in northern California.

The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation and the Cortina Band of Wintun Indians are seeking an easement at Glen Cove. They say it will allow them to monitor cultural sites at the 3,500-year-old settlement.

A group called Sacred Sites Protection and Rights of Indigenous Tribes has occupied the site for 50 days. They want to stop the Greater Vallejo Recreation District from disturbing Glen Cove.

The group includes Ohlone, Miwok and other Indian descendants. The district, however, is only working with the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation and the Cortina Band.
