AIRRO Sponsored Listening Session On Indigenous Rights Violations in The United States

We are attending the listening session in Temecula, sponsored by AIRRO and the Temecula Indians.

The gathering includes participants from at least ten tribes, including Jamul Indian Village, San Luis Rey, Pechanga Temecula Indians, Los Coyotes. Additionally testimony was read from Cherokee Freedmen and Creek Freedmen.

Ruth Cassell, of Los Coyotes discussed how she is standing her ground on the reservation. They called her a troublemaker, but she says that She has been on the resevation over 50 years. The termination era at Los Coyotes came with new tribal leaders and one who dictates to the people versus leading them. It's an example of voting rights abuse eliminating those that disagree.

It is akin to Democrats eliminating a branch of their legislators, say the Blue Dogs, because they don't always march in lockstep. Freedom of opinion, of thought is taken away. Is that America?

We'll follow up with more stories. Please come back and look

UPDATE: Members of the PECHANGA BAND OF LUISENO INDIANS spoke out on how they were denied due process, how the Tribal Council, led by Mark Macarro, failed to follow the Pechanga Constitution and Bylaws. Pechanga overruled the will of the people and by terminating voters, were able to control power and keep from suffering consequences. Remember how votes weren't counted in Florida? See the consequences? We got BUSH. That's what happens, fewer votes opposing you and you can win.

UPDATE: San Luis Rey tribesmen asked WHY they have to prove they ARE INDIAN people, when the government should prove they are NOT. The San Luis Rey tribe was terminated by the US Government in the 40's when their men were out fighting in WWII. They couldn't respond to any government inquiries because they were fighting the troops of Hirohito, Hitler and Mussolini. And they came back to TERMINATION. They are still looking for "recognition"

UPDATE: More Los Coyotes Band members, discussing the facts that they knew the old ways to practice burial cermonies on the elders of those that disenrolled them. One fired from her job was asked to help the new replacement, because nobody knew the job. How is that, again? You are out, but we need your help. Another member said disenrollment is akin to castration.
Kicked out of the tribe for being an "undesireable". Wow, that could empty out the Pechanga tribe, just with the Masiel Crime family alone.

In this lame report, nobody bothers to mention any facts or to use any coherent adult analysis of the matters in question. Instead, we read assertions, accusations, and innuendo, along with a touch of sarcasm. The finger points this way and that, in anger and disappointment, like scattershot. Meanwhile, let us hope the San Luis Rey Indian people succeed in gaining federal recognition of their status as a tribal entity.

Pechanga or The Temecula Band Of Mission Indians. This is how the US Goverment recognized all people of this area. Tribes and triblets were forced onto the reservation, and the people who were alive then knew our history. The US Government has recognized allotted Indians from the Temecula Band of Mission Indians for decades. Trust land has allowed this band to build its gaming facility per IGRA. No trust land, no Gaming facility.

Thank you to all the brothers and sisters who testified and spoke freely from the heart.
The testimonials that where taken and the horror stories that where told yesterday about corruption,
betrayal, greed, deceit, and even family members denying their own brothers and sisters human and civil rights where heartbreaking.

It was the same scenario over and over again, every Tribe has their own corrupt" MARK MACARRO" like tribal thug, and a crime family like the MASIELS.
Every evil thing that they CAN DO they WILL DO and have done.
But there will be an end to this,

Thank you AIRRO for standing up for the rights of the oppressed.

Sadly, the oppressors are not tribal governments themselves.
