Sogorea Te or Ssogoréate was a large village and gathering/ceremonial ground utilized by dozens of tribes who lived near and around the San Francisco Bay Area, For over 3500 years, indigenous people gathered at Sogorea Te or Glen Cove, a large, shallow natural cove at the narrowest portion of the Carquinez Strait, ideal for making land crossings. The descendants recently reoccupied the 15 acred sacred site to rally against a development that would destroy burial grounds, shell mounds and other artifacts of the original peoples. They are into their 85 day with international support.
