I find MANY people are google searching Original Pechanga's blog and looking for how much per capita Pechanga is making.
To clarify for those looking, the per capita for Pechanga, since they terminated two large families has jumped from $10,000 per month, to $30,500 per month. And, this does not include the quarterly bonuses. CPP members say it's about correcting the membership rolls, but, then, you do the math.
Now, expect to see in the comments that someone or two will say that we are whining because we lost our per capita. Loss of income has been difficult, especially for the elders, who are in the unhirable age, or disabled. However, there were 400 or so OTHER rightful Pechanga, the Moratorium people that are also deserving of their share of the sun.
This was NOT what we understood self-reliance was. Terminating Indians of their own tribe, is more disgusting, especially when it was done by those we adopted INTO the tribe.
UPDATED to ADD: Also, the Pechanga Tribal Council pays OVER $90,000 per year. Any wonder why they wanted to remove two large voting blocs? Of course, as a spokesman, Macarro is a "useful idiot" because his public persona belies the temper tantrums he throws on the rez.
