For my new readers, I want to point out a link to a news story that KNBC in Los Angeles did on our family, the Hunters.
WITHOUT A TRIBE told the story of one segment of the Hunter family, Elder Lawrence Madariaga. This story was explosive, bringing to light the corrupt activities of the Pechanga Council and Disenrollment Committee (There have been few enrollments in a decade, just some quid pro quo additions)
This segment was so popular that KNBC ran it in its entirety the next day. That's 16 minutes of air time in a 90 minute block of news (less commercials).
The Pechanga Chairman Macarro, (who is ancestorally related by marriage to the Hunters) was caught in a lie in the first 15 seconds of his commercial leading up to the broadcast. You will be able to see how shifty-eyed he is, which is indicative of lying in the piece.
One thing to remember: Macarro has spoken on camera many times, given speeches to audiences of thousands and interviews with newspapers, politicians, activists, new clients of the casino. Dr. John Johnson is a scholar, the authority on California's native tribes.
Watch the video and ask yourself: WHICH ONE LOOKED MORE AT EASE on camera? Was it the chairman, or Dr. Johnson? The one with lies behind him, or truth? Please leave your comments at the KNBC site and rate the video. You can help get a second story aired closer to the election.
