San Manuel OUTSHINES Pechanga - AGAIN

Our Cousin Teetilawuncha's Blog has the story of San Manuel banning a criminal element from their reservation:

In an unprecedented move, San Manuel Chairman James Ramos has announced his tribe's decision to fine two convicted tribal members linked to a murder conspiracy and ban them from the reservation.Decisions made by the tribal council, composed of all tribal members over age 21, typically remain private matters within the tribe and are never made public.Ramos said the tribal council's Dec. 13 decision to ban Stacy Barajas-Nunez 26, and her brother, Erik Barajas, 36, from the reservation and fine them a "considerable" amount of money for disorderly conduct speaks volumes to the tribe's position of holding its members accountable for errant behavior.

Pechanga embraces their criminal element and in fact, used the word of an imprisoned child molester to terminate one family, over the word of the most respected educator in the matters of California Indian tribes?
