Statement on the George Floyd death and ensuing protests
from the Jamul Indian Village
The death of George Floyd is a tragedy. This heartbreaking event has highlighted a long overdue change that each member of our society is accountable to enact. Our Tribe has seen firsthand the impacts of endemic racism. Like all of you, we want change—not just statements about change, but actions that implement change. Talk is cheap; life shouldn’t be. While we’ve seen scenes of property destruction and it’s reprehensible, the Jamul Indian Village supports the fundamental right to protest and the message of the protesters.
