- A statue of Father Junipero Serra was overthrown last year due to the Capitol building in Sacramento. Governor Gavin Newsom signed a law Friday to replace it with a memorial for the state Native Americans. Deputy James ramos, a democrat from Mountains and member of the Serrano / Cahuilla tribe, drafted the bill that would erect the memorial. The law would allow tribal nations plan, construction and maintain the monument. But it might be some time before the monument is built.
