For Immediate Release:
This past Saturday the 24th of January 2009 Traditional people from various tribes across turtle island gathered outside Pechanga Casino and Resort in Temecula California for a Candle Light Prayer Visual to shed light on the dark side of Casinos and what they bring to our people and communities.
On this same day tribal leaders, congressional dignitaries and representatives from President Obama's administration gathered inside the Pechanga Casino for a Tribal leaders forum. Tribal Identity Theft is Becoming an Epidemic In Indian Country. Many In Indian Country see Disenrollment as The New Form of The Old Termination Policy used by the Federal Government During The Last Century.
The General Public Is Unaware of The Fact That Only a Handful of Tribes Truly Benefit from Indian Gaming. Thousands of Traditional First Nations People throughout Indian Country have been denied or stripped of their Basic Human and Civil Rights to Adequate Health Care, Higher Educational Services, And Proper Housing By Corrupt Tribal Leaders. The United States Of America Signed 389 Treaties With The First Nations People In North America. And Each Treaty Calls For These Basic Human and Civil Rights. When a Human Being Is Disenrolled, he or she is not entitled to any of the of the above mentioned provisions awarded to First Nation People Through International Law.
American Indians are The Only Group of People In North America Who Must Prove Their Lineage through The Blood Quantum in order to be eligible for membership or citizenship in their tribe or Native American nation. Lineal Descendancy Can and Should Be used By All The Tribes of North America. The Blood Quantum is Clearly an Instrument Used by The BIA or Bureau of Indian Affairs to Systematically Extinguish the few remaining First Nations People of North America.
In The Spirit of Resistance, Many Different Native American Nations have began a Movement To Educate The General Public and to Dispel the Rumors that All Indians are Rich and That Indians Don't have to pay Taxes. The Time Has Come to Demand Justice For Traditional First Nations People who Want Nothing More than to be Recognized as Human Beings.
Join Us This Coming Feb 5th 2009 at The State Capital Building North Side From 11am-3pm To Demand Justice For Traditional First Nations People As We Shed Light On The Truth On Indian Gaming And How It Has Infected Our Tribal Leaders With Greed.
