UPDATE: BREAKING NEWS: Picayune Rancheria Laying Groundwork for More Indian Termination Acts

UPDATE:    Patrick hammond, former chair of the enrollment committee at picayune and recently elected to his second term on the PRCI council, has been formally removed from the council following a hearing before same...





Sources from the Picayune Rancheria, which operates the Chukchansi Gold Casino, already well known for their brazen act of Indian Termination, (elimination of 50% of their tribal members) is laying the groundwork for MORE destruction of Native Americans.   Also will eliminate child care.....  read below for the Picayune Rancheria's "Indian Way" of doing business.

The Picayune Tribal Council has submitted a petition to amend the Enrollment Ordinance to require DNA testing for tribal membership. This same proposal also removes language that secures the tribal membership of the current enrollment, paving the way for hundreds of further disenrollments of those Chukchansi still recognized at Picayune. This proposed amended Enrollment Ordinance was brought forward at the monthly tribal meeting April 25th, 2011, which was attended by only 35 tribal members. Written input will only be accepted until May 25 by the executive secretary to the council, at which time the recently installed tribal council will vote on--and undoubtedly approve--this proposal resulting in almost immediate implementation of new dismemberment hearings, as well as rulings on/disenrollments of those brought to hearing in 2007 with no decision rendered.

Furthermore, a resolution was passed at the April 21, 2011 business meeting held by the tribal council "Resolution 2011-32- ADOPTION OF POLICY FOR DEFINITION OF AN ELIGIBLE CHILD" which immediately has denied eligibility of the children of a certain group of members within the tribe "petitioners" from receiving any tribal benefits or funding-- including childcare and inclusion in the tribal pre-school program.

Both the proposed amendment to the Enrollment Ordinance and this resolution were developed, and in the case of the resolution passed, without notice to tribal members of any plan for change. Furthermore, funding for the children of the "petitioners" has been stopped immediately without written advance notice to those affected.

The blatant violation of the tribal, civil, and human rights of those at Picayune continues with the focus on those most unable to defend themselves--our children, our future generations.

The Indian way? Non-existent in tribes such as Picayune, whose corrupt tribal governments exist today only to decimate their own People, destroy their own culture, and defile their own ancestors in their insatiable lust for power and their unending greed.  This is a tribal casino to avoid, immediately.

AND IT GOES ON AND ON. WERE IS DUE PROCESS? "THEY ARE MAKING THIS UP AS THEY GO ALONG," KNOWING FULL WELL THAT THE DEPT. OF INTERIOR, INDIAN AFFAIRS, THE B.I.A., INDIAN CIVIL RIGHTS ACT, SENATE ON INDIAN AFFAIRS, (AND YOU CAN GO ON AND ON) WILL NOT STAND IN THEIR WAY. THE "GREED" OF THESE "CASINO WHORES" IS "MIND BOGGLING." MAFIA, 1920'S, GETTING RID OF THE COMPITION. WITH INDIAN LEADERS ATTEMTING TO CHANGE THEIR RESPECTIVE CONSTITUTIONS AND BYLAWS TO SUIT THEIR OWN PURPOSE AND CONTINUE TO DISENROLL MORE OF THEIR OWN LEGITIMATE MEMBERSHIP TO INCREASE THEIR PERCAP FOR THE FEW IN POWER.

We didn't lose our rights overnight, so we shouldn't expect to get them back overnight.

We should expect people to stay involved however. When lettes need to be sent, send them. When websites or articles need comment, comment on them.

Social media, like FB and Twitter should be used everyday, so to increase the number of people who are exposed to what is going on. We have to crack the "I didn't know, excuse". We can do that by telling the story verbally, and sharing on FB, MySpace, Twitter, which can be done with a click of the mouse.

Garbani's shady roots. Switzerland turned Mexican 4 land when Mexican's in charge; then U.S. Infiltrated Reservations through collusion with 'Agents.'

Temecula Valley Historical Society literally shows collusion between Agents and non-Indians.

My family, the Foremans 85 of us from the redding rancheria were disenrolled in 2004 after all the documentation of our history 5 generations living on the rancheria we exhumed the bodies of our great grandmother and grandmother to prove our lineage to the tribe after proving by 99.997 percent that they were indeed mother and daughter the council put it in the hands of the general membership for a secret ballot vote, we could not vote because of our bias in our vote, we lost 42-17

YOU DID MEAN, "FORCEABLY REMOVED." THIS NEWEST BLATANT ACT AGAINST PICAYUNE TRIBAL MEMBERS IS THEIR "DIRECT RESPONSE," MAY 25, TO OUR "PROTEST/RALLY, JUNE 2." THEY ARE "TELLING ALL OF US "NATIVE AMERICANS"....." YOU CAN NOT STOP US." WE WILL DO AS WE PLEASE, AND HERE IS THE "PROOF." AND IT WON'T STOP HERE. IF THIS DOEN'T GIVE ALL "NATIVE AMERICANS" A "REASON" TO STAND AND FIGHT THESE "VILE" TRIBAL LEADERS. THIS "CANCER" WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD AND FESTER THROUGHOUT INDIAN COUNTRY. THEY MAKE IT UP AS THEY GO. GET REAL. WHERE ARE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS? I ASK YOU, WHERE IS THE DEPT. OF INTERIOR INDIAN AFFAIRS. WHERE IS THE B.I.A.? WHERE IS THE SENATE ON INDIAN AFFAIRS? WHERE IS LARRY ECHOHAWK? DOEN'T THE "INDIAN CIVIL RIGHTS ACT" ADDRESS ANY OF THIS? IF THIS CANCER IS ALLOWED TO GROW AND FESTER IN INDIAN COUNTRY WITHOUT AGGRESSIVE ACTION, THE HOST WILL "DIE." YOU HAVE RIGHTS, NOW STAND WITH US AT THE PROTEST/RALLY JUNE 2 AT PECHANGA CASINO AND TAKE BACK WHAT HAS BEEN ILLEGALLY STOLEN FROM US, FOR IN NUMBERS WE ARE STRONG. FOR ALL "NATIVE AMERICANS" IT'S YOUR TIME TO STAND AND BE COUNTED, "NOW."
