Inscription. This knoll is the site of a Native American village believed to have been occupied for over 100 generations or 3,000 years. It has been preserved to honor both the Chumash and Salinan Nations that inhabited this region before the arrival of the Spanish, Mexicans and Americans. Their descendants, who call themselves Chumash (or Stitchne) and Salinan People, consider this land to be sacred. Please observe this area with respect.

"The sacred circle has not been, and will not be broken."
