Do Native American Millenials KNOW What Their "Elders" Did to Natives Via Disenrollment?

We asked some questions in the first installment of the reprise of Pechanga's Splinter Group leading the way to Tribal Genocide, via paper, of over 20% of it's tribal membership. .. So many young members of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians from Temecula CA... Have NO idea what went on.

REALLY, though, all young who were, say 12 years of age when the disenrollments happened at Redding, Enterprise, Chukchansi and Pechanga, are now 25 years old.  DO THEY KNOW?

Do they know that a family was disenrolled, even though they are descended from the man whose land grant the casino now sits? Or, was the first chairperson of their tribe after getting their rights back? (Redding)

Pechanga Tribe's Splinter Group PART IV: Setting Tribal Genocide in MOTION

We are reprising a set of posts from 2008, from the Manuela Miranda Family of Pechanga, when fewer people understood what disenrollment was doing to Native people.

People say, "why don't you ask the Native American Rights Fund for help? Well, we have, they told me the "didn't do Indian vs. Indian". Shamefully, NARF has the leader of a disenrolling tribe, Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro on their board.       Read on.....

When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the unions and the industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned.
Then Hitler attacked me and the Protestant church -- and there was nobody left to be concerned.

Martin Niemoller, Congressional Record, 14 October 1968, page 31636

Why this installment regarding the Splinter Group starting with a quote about Hitler and the Nazis. Well, if you have not noticed, there is a new era of genocide rolling through Indian Country. This genocide is not at the hands of the Spanish government, nor a policy of the US government.

This new genocide is being carried out by non-Indian people masquerading as “TRUE” Indian people, and “LEGITIMATE” Indian people under their control who have lost their way and turned their backs on their brothers and sisters.

Pechanga Tribe's SPLINTER GROUP Part 3: Breaking Away from the Band

3rd in a series..
OP:  An interesting question was brought up in the comments of Part ONE consider this when you read it:

If Butch Murphy and the others, including Jennie Miranda and HER FAMILY, started their own tribe and were recognized by the BIA,  isn't that against Pechanga's by laws? If you are enrolled in an other tribe you can not enroll in Pechanga.


Jose Juan of San Pasqual
GIVING UP IS NOT in the plans for the San Pasqual Descendants in their quest for JUSTICE for their ancestors and themselves.  Today, we have some evidence of what could be deliberate malfeasance on the part of San Pasqual Tribal council ....malfeasance. In this case, DAVE TOLER may have deliberately mislead the Bureau of Indian Affairs, on the Jose Juan history.

It appears, that Toler used any old Jose Juan's history to mislead the BIA in order to keep the proper descendants out of the tribe and keep the descendants of white man Frank Trask in place.  Toler was also confronted in this video by Huumaay Quisquis.

Pechanga Tribe's SPLINTER GROUP 2:Those NOT MEETING Membership Requirements Worm Their Way into the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians

PART TWO in a series.

We are reprising the story of the SPLINTER GROUP, the Concerned Pechanga People and the FAKES...originally exposed by descendants of Pablo Apis, the original land owner where the Pechanga Resort & Casino now sits. So many tribal members are coming of age and asking WHAT HAPPENED?

Some have asked who is BM (OP: Butch Murphy)? Are those the correct initials? Which families were those that could not meet the membership requirements? Which families formed the Splinter Group and the Concerned Pechanga People?

Well, BM are the correct initials. As for the families that could not meet the membership requirements and formed the Splinter Group, let’s just call them “M and M”. Sure, there are others that joined them, but the “M and M” families spearheaded the whole thing. But whatever you do, don’t expect to find the “M and M” families in any historical documents about the Temecula Indians. Yet, our elders remember them STANDING on the steps HOLLERING to be let in the tribe, including the late ancestor of a current, disenfranchised lawyer living in WA.

Lawsuit Against Disreputable Chukchani Tribe, DISMISSED in Federal Court, REFILED in State Court

THE TRIBE NEED THEIR HELP, PROMISED TO PAY and then DON'T? WHO could have foreseen this?

A $21 million lawsuit from a group that claims it was instrumental in getting Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino reopened in 2015 has been dismissed from federal court, but was refiled at the state level shortly after that ruling.

The lawsuit, filed by Osceola Blackwood Ivory Gaming Group (OBIG) of Florida in March, contends tribal officials in the summer of 2015 agreed to pay the company 30 percent of net revenues for seven years, allowable under National Indian Gaming Commission rules. The numbers were later negotiated to 25 percent over five years.


Our friends from the Manuela Miranda descendants (ON WHOSE Ancestor's LAND the Pechanga Casino Sits) published these stories 10 years ago. We think it's time to refresh some memories,  and make sure new parties are informed.

So many young members of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians from Temecula CA... Have NO idea what went on.

Do they know that a family was disenrolled, even though they are descended from the man whose land grant the casino now sits?
Do they know the tribal council went against the will of their people? 
Do they know Hunter descendants have been on their reservation land since BEFORE most of the tribal population was born?
DO they KNOW the tribe HIRED an expert, paid him THOUSANDS of dollars and then DIDN't USE his work because it disagreed with their plans?

What is the Splinter Group? Who are its members? What is its relationship to the so called Concerned Pechanga People? Why did they spearhead the Pechanga disenrollments?

Here is some information about the Splinter Group and the Concerned Pechanga People and their role in the disenrollments of legitimate Pechanga tribal members.

The information provided is available to the public and can be obtained from federal agencies through the Freedom of Information Act process.   All quotes are taken directly from tribal and government documents obtained through the FOIA process.

Origins of the Splinter Group

In 1978 the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians adopted a Constitution and By Laws and an Enrollment procedure, all of which were to become effective on January 1, 1979. During 1979, the Band began operating under its Constitution and By Laws and began its first full year of accepting enrollment applications.

Everything went smoothly with these various processes until about mid-1980 when a small group of dissident individuals led by now councilmember BM (Butch Murphy) began attending meetings and opposing everything that the Band had been working for the past ten years. This group voiced its opposition in the name of “custom and tradition.” They so disrupted the regular Band meetings that nominations for the tribal council elections could not be held and had to be postponed until March of 1981 with the election to follow in April.

In the meantime, in October, 1980, Butch Murphy and his followers announced that they were breaking away from the Band and forming their own tribe. (Meaning THEY WERE NOT PECHANGA)

So, in January, 1981, they held their own elections and elected a spokesman and four council members, none of whom were enrolled members of the Pechanga Band. This self appointed “tribe”, whom Pechanga Band referred to as the “splinter group”, then went to the Bureau of Indian Affairs and requested formal recognition as the official Pechanga Band.

This recognition was granted the splinter group in spite of the fact that (1) the Council members were not enrolled tribal members; and (2) the BIA had been previously advised that this was just a splinter group; and (3) the real Band’s election was to be held in April, not in January.

After the Pechanga Band’s April election, the real Pechanga Band was once again recognized by the BIA.

However, BM, leader of the splinter group, appealed the decision of the BIA to recognize the Pechanga Band’s duly-elected council pursuant to the April 25, 1981 election.

The Pechanga Band expended significant effort in responding to BM’s Appeal. This was necessitated by the fact that BM’s Appeal “shows an alarming and blatant disregard for the true facts. That appeal document …is replete with half truths, lies, misstatements and misinformation, and as such is wholly irresponsible”.

Stay TUNED...

Great story from  KUOW on the NOOKSACK DISENROLLMENT

IHS Money QUOTE:  We totally believe in the sovereignty of the tribe and support that. Whatever the tribe decides to do when they have a duly elected council — if they want to disenroll folks — that’s their tribal business,” Seyler said.

Over the past few weeks, dozens of tribes across the Pacific Northwest have been paddling canoes 200-400 miles on the salty waters between Washington and Vancouver Island.

Deborah Alexander led about a dozen young paddlers on the annual canoe journey along traditional trade routes. Alexander’s canoe was filled with many people, including herself, who have been disenrolled from their tribe.

“We’re fighting for our right to remain Nooksack,” she said.

Alexander’s long wooden canoe is named after her grandmother, Emma, a symbol of disenrollment. The Nooksack tribal government said Alexander and her extended family of 306 were disenrolled because they couldn’t provide the birth certificate of Emma’s mother.

Alexander was removed from tribal rolls and fired from her job as a teacher about a year ago.

Now the federal government is stepping in. The Department of Interior says the tribe improperly disenrolled Alexander’s extended family because the disenrollments happened after the Nooksack Council failed to hold an election when many of its seats expired.

Because the tribal government lacks quorum, the Department of Interior says, the tribe does not have a government, and the feds aren’t recognizing the disenrollments.

The federal government is now denying Washington’s Nooksack tribe tens of millions of dollars. They’ve shut down the casino and are taking over tribal health care.
