CHUKCHANSI 600 Watch from the Outside as Chukchansi Looks at More Disenrollments.

We wrote in July about new disenrollment activity at the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians.

This new disenrollment is purely political as one of the original Chukchansi 600 to be disenrolled, Cathy Cory explains, when asked if the disenrollments have to do with $50 million which is missing.

There are some members of the distributee group which are alleged to have participated in the theft of considerable funds from Picayune--alongside others both inside and outside the tribe. 

That said, that is not the reason the tribal council has given for their proposed disenrollment. They are accused of having "dual enrollment" in another tribe, which is not so. 

The tribal council should ensure action is taken against ALL those suspected of this theft in a court of law, where they would be punished if convicted--not try to disenroll them for something that isn't even the case, and leave others unpunished. This is purely political. 

Over 600 Chukchansi People, fully a third of the tribe, were previously disenrolled in 2006-2007 and REMAIN disenrolled at Picayune today. 


This is beyond ludicrous.  The NATIVE AMERICAN RIGHTS FUND (NARF) is requesting DONATIONS to help HEAL our Native Communities.

The U.S. Government’s historical attempts to wipe out tribal cultures continue to haunt Native Americans even today but together, we can achieve justice and healing for our communities.

What about CURRENT tribal cultures that have STRIPPED Native Americans of their heritage, denied them justice and injured our children, rather than provid healing.

Remember?  NARF was requested to help the over 11,000 Natives who have been harmed by their tribes?   They said: We don't do Indian vs. Indian   Historical abuse is serious, NARF, but SO IS CURRENT ABUSES BY TRIBES.

Nepotism charges are being raised  Gaming Commissioner FIRED.   Reportedly, Joe Elliott has been placed in charge of the casino he even a high school grad...


Pauma Victory over Schwarzeneggar Costs CA Taxpayers $36 MILLION

California will pay $36.3 million after losing a years-long legal fight with a Southern California tribe over a casino deal negotiated by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger that traded permission to add slot machines in return for millions of dollars in payments to the General Fund .

Because he SCREWED PAUMA in 2004....  GOOD FOR THEM, bad for CA.

OPechanga University: LEARNING about Disenrollments, Moratorium, Banishment and Tribal Corruption

Disenrollments En Masse are NOT
YOU can learn about the corruption and abuses of civil rights in Indian Country with a bit of reading and some "course work" on the injustices to Native Americans from their OWN TRIBES.  Most important, YOU can share with family, friends and government.  Help them earn a diploma for knowledge earned and SHARED.

There has been so much coverage of the latest (meaning last two years) rash of tribal disenrollments at Nooksack, Grand Ronde, Hopland to name a few. 

I thought it would be good to bring some historical context to the issue.

In this post, I put up links to some of  the many stories that have ended with over 11,000 Native Americans, suffering harm from their tribes, coupled with the failure of the BIA/Interior/Federal Governments to handle their trust responsibilities.

Each link will take you to a blog post, and each blog post can be shared on your FB pages, Twitter and Pinterest.   I hope it helps.  I'll revise as I get it together, there is a search bar on the upper left of the blog, search your tribe.  

10 Things YOU Can Do to Help Stop Civil Rights Violations in Indian Country.

We published these years ago from the President of American Indian Rights and Resources Org (AIRRO), and we think it's still timely, and I've added some enhancements from the original post. 

HOPING someone ELSE will do something IS NOT a Battle Plan

You can help us and help your Native American friends who suffer at the hands of tribes like: Pechanga, Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians, Redding Rancheria, San Pasqual, Enterprise, Guideville, Pala , Grande Ronde and the NOOKSACK 306

Here are 10 Things You Can Do To Help Stop the Lawlessness in Indian Country

1. Call, Write, and Email your Congressional representatives and tell them that the violations of human rights and civil liberties must be stopped and the violators must be prosecuted. Remind them that it is their trust responsibility to protect individual Indians from harm. Find your representative at THIS LINK     

OP: If only 10 people send a letter, it makes no impact, 11 is more, 120 is better. Don't sit back and hope somebody writes a letter, or email or fax. Send one yourself and one for your wife and kids and ask your neighbors if you can send one on their behalf. If you are reading this, there is NO EXCUSE for not joining the battle for the rights of your family.

2. Write letters to the editors of your local newspapers (Like PATCH, or local weeklies) describing the violations of human rights and civil liberties occurring in Indian Country. Develop contacts in the media

OP: How do you think we got a news piece on KNBC (linked at my blogroll) or on KCBS? The editors will write about what their readers want to read.  The Nooksack 306 have been on radio, television and print. Grand Ronde had their disenrollees on the radio.  Al-Jazeera has done a show. Their work helps all who have been harmed by their tribes.

3. Boycott Indian Casinos owned by those tribes whose tribal officials have violated the human rights and civil liberties of its citizens and customers. 

OP: I used to spend $3,000 a year at Pechanga, but no more. I tell people now, not to go there, and why, WRITE or CALL the casino to tell them why you are NO LONGER coming, otherwise they will just think "business is down"

4. Get others to boycott with you.

Andrew Masiel, Pechanga's Civil Rights Abuser & Disenroller Democrat Candidate FOR State Assembly

Are Democrats scraping the bottom of the barrel for candidates?

I noticed that readers were coming to my blog looking at a post about former Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians Tribal Council Member Andrew Masiel Sr.  It was an unusually high number, so it set my curiosity meter off.  According to CA Secretary of State Website Masiel Sr. is the Democratic candidate for State Assembly.


(951) 676-5310 (Business)
Business Consultant
Andrew Masiel Sr.
Has he and the Democrats NO SHAME?  

The man who led the fight to disenroll HUNDREDS of Native Americans from his own tribe, leaving them outcasts on their own reservation.

He didn't have the decency to look out for his own people,  recuse himself from sitting in judgement of his mother and aunt's decisions,  or even show up on time to our appeals hearings, now wants OUR support and votes for CA state assembly against Marie Waldron?  NOTE:  THIS IS NOT A PRO-WALDRON post, it is ANTI-Masiel.

Here are some of his disqualifications:

Gary Condit's firm to lobby the state Legislature at a time when the legislative panel overseeing gambling issues is chaired by Condit’s son-in-law.
