Carlos Davidson reports that a group of Pacificans have submitted a petition to GGNRA asking for recognition of Native Americans at the San Francisco Bay discovery site. In part the petition reads: "We the undersigned call upon the GGNRA to put up educational signage at the Sweeney Ridge Discovery Site that talks about the native peoples living around the bay at the time, and honestly discusses how the claim of discovery ignores native knowledge and native peoples.
