The Northern Chumash people live on the magical land that is called San Luis Obispo County. The Chumash are the First Peoples of this land and have thrived as a maritime culture along this coastline enjoying its magnificent beauty. The Chumash are still a vibrant community, practicing their heritage and culture today.
After fasting near the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and celebrating the Buddha’s enlightenment in LA, our friends from Nipponzan Myohoji end twelve days of action for a nuclear-free Mother Earth with a 12-mile walk from the gates of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant into the city of San Luis Obispo. The walk will start at 9 am at the gates to the plant with blessings from Fred Collins and the Northern Chumash Tribal Council. All are invited to join (for part or all of the day’s walk). Details of the route are posted on the website and facebook page of Mothers for Peace of San Luis Obispo. http://mothersforpeace.org/data/2012%20items/12.12.12peacewalk.
Please join if you are able to be in the area.
