Pechanga asks Judge to End Liska Case; Judge Says Not Through Yet

Joe Liska received good news in court today. The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians hired attorney's tried to get the Judge to toss the case today.

The tribe had told the judge that Mr. Liska was guilty of trespass. It was news to Joe, as he never had a trial, never presented a defense. Anyone hear of due process?

There seems to be reckless conduct in Pechanga's handling of this matter. Not to mention the possible conspiracy to defraud Mr. Liska of his tribal heritage. The Judge couldn't believe that there has been a moratorium for 14 years, which was designed to help the tribe "catch up" on a backlog of requests.

The judge want to lean more and the case is continued. She will have orders next week. Congratulations Joe, keep up your fight for what is right. Let's see, maybe the Boy Scouts will rethink giving Pechanga an award for ethics and family values?

And Rep. Nick Rahall, how about those hearings?

Yaaaaaaaaay, Joe!!! I'm glad the judge ~finally~ questioned their actions and continued the case!! Its about time!!

Keep up the good work and know that even tho some of us cant physically be there to support you, in court, etc, that we're with you in spirit.

You are an encouragement--thank you!!

Partially from my other post...

This one man's case will not win it for all, and Pechanga will continue to fight until they can't anymore. Even if Joe wins, will each case that follows lead to the same result?

I've been following what has been going on for several years now, and, I must say, am angry that nothing has really changed. Justice has not been restored to the "Original" Pechanga people.

What will it take to MOVE the forgotten Pechanga people? Or even all of the disenrolled LuiseƱo?

For so long, I've read or heard about petitions and protests, and talks, and court battles (kangaroo court battles), but NO ACTION. How many are disenrolled? Not just from Pechanga, but all of your LuiseƱo brothers and sisters? How long can you be ignored?

How many times will you stand on a street corner with signs, and still do nothing? Nothing has ever changed without direct action. If you want change, then look to the defiant civil rights leaders of the past. Non-violent action, sit-ins, civil disobedience (without violent lawlessness) won. Without these acts, laws would never have been moved to change.

My Native American Tribal ancestors and my African Tribal ancestors had to fight for their civil rights to be where they are today. Though I am not of your tribe (yes YOUR tribe), I am moved to want action. It isn't my place to organize, but one of YOU to organize! What would the New Pechanga do if hundreds, or even thousands of you sat in their government building? What could they do if hundreds or even thousands marched onto the reservation? Would they shoot you? Would they arrest you? Would they hurt you in front of television cameras? I promise you that the rest of the world would start listening, because THEY AREN'T RIGHT NOW.

My people died for their rights. Your petitions aren't working. Your complaints in the kangaroo courts are a joke to them. They have unlimited funds to fight off any hint of a legal problem. You will only win this battle through the hearts of the rest of the members if they can see past the paycheck. If their paychecks aren't being processed, then the ones that only care about the money will start listening.

Would you die for your cause? Would you unite with the other disenrolled state-wide, or even country-wide, to march onto the reservations that are denying you your history? Maybe it's time for a little disobedience. Maybe it's time to look beyond just the disenrolled "Original" Pechanga.

Maybe if you work hand in hand with the other forsaken tribal members, and take a stand for direct action, then maybe you will be heard.

I will stand with you!

Lift every voice and sing,
'Til earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on 'til victory is won.

Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chast'ning rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
'Til now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.

God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;
Shadowed beneath Thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God,
True to our native land.

-James W. Johnson 1871-1938

Never let the wine of the world make you forget Him, or yourself, as New Pechanga has!

It is time for change!

joe said...

The comment's above are true,ask the sixteen people that went,ask the the sixteen people if sigins in front of the court house got the attention of several federal agency's!

The first QUESTION OUT OF the judges mouth to their attorney was (WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO BE A PECHANGA INDIAN)???????

I think that may have been as a result of 16 warriors wanting to hear and see JUSTICE!!!!!


SORRY I have to agree with the above post ,debate's with congress are nothing compared to (16 warriors outside court with signs)

YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING UNLESS YOU WERE THERE AND SAW IT,


SOME HAVE CALLED MY PROTESTING RADICAL (U.S CONGRESS) HARDLEY!!!


I believe more hearings and investigation must come in this case to give me a fair ruling !!!


I HOPE THE JUDGE DOES WHATS RIGHT!!!!!!!

A Thank you to my supporters that came and I welcome my new brothers and sisters that came,white buffalo ,and mike and wife from the hunter family and another new rios family member,,,,,

Let's make it 160 warriors next time! ...and then 1600...

If you believe in in this cause, show your solidarity! March on! BE at the courthouse with signs, hand-outs, and your friends. Show New Pechanga that you will not stand for this attack on Civil Rights!

Tell your friends, tell your family, put it on your Facebook, put it on your Myspace. A rally is coming to the court. We're looking for your call, Joe. Money talks, but the heart walks the walk. New Pechanga can throw all their money at the courts and the state, but the hearts of your supporters WILL win the day!

Let's bring the disenrolled from all over this state to the courthouse for the next hearing! Let's bring the disenrolled from across the country! Only you can do this!

IT IS A NEW DAY! No matter what the outcome, you have already won. Joe, you have shown the forsaken that even a small victory is so much bigger than the worst defeat.

Let's get this rolling. Let's show the United States what the New Casino tribes are doing to their people.

Can you feel Mr. Madariaga looking from above upon this? Can you feel Pauline Hunter looking from above upon this? Can you feel the power of their families, and of the other disenrolled... the other forsaken Original Pechanga people?

This is just the beginning! Be there! Tell your friends. Tell your neighbors. Make it happen!

It IS time for change!

3.she could pull the tribe in for another settlement hearing.

4.the tribes attorney tried to get it dismissed and she stated "were not there yet" unknown whats going to happen. Might no in a week.

Can the troops not meet Joe in court and support him. If 100 people could go, which I am sure is possible it would help him and our rights to be heard. Really only 16 people in the whole state of California could make it. I am sorry Joe, you should have everyone there and if I lived in the state I would be there in a heartbeat.

EVERYONE show yourselves for his support and show the judge that you stand for him and behind him. A DIFFERENCE it will make. I promise you. No fear. This is your chance and your right.

Back him................

The thing is regarding Mr. Liska's lawsuit. While it is good for people to show up at the court to give him moral support, them being there has no bearing on how the judge is going to rule as judges just go by what the law is and legal precedant.

People showing up is more to make him feel good, which is a good thing, then it is to help his case be succesful.

Anonymous said...

moral support is good,we are talking about a show of many that have been wronged.

And yes it has no bearing on the ruling,however one could argue that point if the judge wants to bring in a enrollment committee member as a result of many caught up in a moratorium or abuse ,then this could be as a result of many showing up!


support is good,

Oliphant v. Suquamish Indian Tribe

Do you know this case? This was a non tribal member charged with resisting arrest and battery on a tribal police officer. He filed a writ of habeas corpus against the tribe and stated he does not argue about the charge but the tribe cannot try him in their tribal court ,he is not a member of the tribe. The u.s supreme court granted him his writ of habeas corpus they stated indian tribes cannot try and punish non members.

This is the same thing for Liska ,he was charged with trespass (clearly stated on the exclusion letter)he was charged punished thru the tribal court or hearing system, violating his civil rights.


This was part of Liska's oral argument.The judge stated if they are putting him thru the tribal court they are treating him like a member!

Anonymous said...

Furthermore in Duro v. Reina in 1990 the u.s supreme court ruled tribes cannot try and punish other indians from other tribes that live on their rez.

Anonymous said...

Arelene macarro can file a writ against the tribe for doing the same thing to her!

John gomez could also do the same,he went thru a tribal hearing process as a non member.

Showing up in court to support Mr. Liska in his fight to gain his rights and bring some sunlight to what Pechanga has done is a good thing.

Sending your letters to your congressman and committee members is another.
