Good morning CA COASTAL COMMISSIONERS (Entered by Patricia McPherson for JohnTommy Rosas)
I, JOHNTOMMY ROSAS is providing 1 TATTN flash drive for this item 5-
Section 1. is for the public and Patricia Mc Pherson has offered to present so I have authorized her to run both TATTN presentation its on the BWER FRESH WATER historical exhibits -and its importance to the registered sacred sites there - that require fresh water for our tribal cultural/ natural resources-currently and ever since playa vista dev ruined and illegally diverted the fresh water pre-existing for millenniums by their illegal fresh water marsh and its illegal water discharges into the ballona creek channel -at appx 500,000- gallons per day-those are playa vistas math and numbers -my math has it way higher-
Section 2. both are pre-existing and current environmental justice cases that
are in total violation to the CCC codes/laws and the CZMA -
TATTN submits these exhibits to the CCC to authorize an investigate them and assemble a report [s]
additionally the CCC hasn’t complied to their now approved Commission’s formal Tribal Notification and Consultation Policy, with TATTN on this proposal and other’s involving our tribal territory -
including the the BWER-

'‘ Traditional Ecological Knowledge The phrase “traditional ecological knowledge,” also called “indigenous knowledge” or “Native science,” refers to the evolving knowledge acquired by indigenous and local peoples over hundreds or thousands of years through direct contact with the environment. This knowledge is specific to a location and includes the relationships between plants, animals, natural phenomena, landscapes and timing of events that are used for lifeways, including but not limited to hunting, fishing, trapping, agriculture, and forestry. Traditional knowledge is an accumulating body of knowledge, practice, and belief, evolving by adaptive processes and handed down through generations by cultural transmission, about the relationship of living beings (human and non-human) with one another and with the environment. It encompasses the world view of indigenous people which includes ecology, spirituality, human and animal relationships, and more. ''

Crooked numbers because they don’t show [e] by itself

And I don’t believe this bs either it mixes the numbers =bs
‘’ e Not including Freshwater Marsh flows over weir to Ballona Wetlands.
f Includes the Freshwater Marsh area.
i This includes the area located between Culver and Jefferson Boulevards, west of Lincoln Boulevard, which drains directly to the Freshwater Marsh outlet to Ballona Channel.’’It cant possibly beall those combo’s – when you read it its conflicting with each one -so that also means their math conflicts too= erroneous/fraud //
