Sophia Madariaga, Hunter Family Elder Passes UPDATE

UPDATE: The services for Sophia will be held this Saturday, Feb. 21st at 2pm at:

The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses
24285 Lenox Ln.
Murrieta, CA



Our cousins at Teetilawuncha Blog have the sad news that Sophie Madariaga wife of Hunter Family Elder Lawrence Madariaga has passes away.

A 60 year resident of the Pechanga Reservation, Sophie knew most of those who came LATER.

You can see Sophie in action in the video below:





Pechanga Tribal Council has disgraced themselves with the disenrollment of the Hunter Family and the Manuela Miranda Family. They compound that disgrace by keeping members out via an unlawful moratorium.


Sophia, rest in peace

What type of people are the Pechangas, who feel NO shame at what they have done?

Why did they lie on their commercials?

Was Sophia on the reservation before Mark Macarro?

I really don't think we should get into the politics at this time out of respect for our cousins the Madariagas.

But yes Lawrence and Sophia have been there on the reservation before a lot of people.

That is all I am going to say about that for now.

MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO LAWRENCE AND FAMILY AT THIS TIME.

REST IN PEACE SOPHIA!

My condolences to the family. I think Sophia can rest in peace as long as she knows we will continue the struggle for what is right. It shouldn't have to be a struggle, but the truth eludes our relatives sometimes.
