"It’s been a long and emotional battle, but descendants of Miwok Indian Aleck Blue have finally been given official rights to burial grounds at the Hicksville Cemetery on Arno Road....Sunday, April 28, Galt-Arno Cemetery District officials dedicated a portion of the cemetery, designating it exclusively to the Blue family. Descendants have been fighting for this for years, claiming that Pio Valensin, property owner at the time, promised the area to Blue for him and his family."(Submitted on March 19, 2022.)
