Media Advisory for Civil & Human Rights Protest at the Pechanga Resort and Casino

Media Advisory: For Immediate Release

PROTEST of Civil and Human Rights Violations at Pechanga’s Resort and Casino
June 2, 2011 at 4 p.m.

Temecula, CA - On June 2, 2011 in front of the Pechanga Resort & Casino in the 4500 block of Pechanga Parkway , protestors will rally to bring attention to the civil rights violations happening throughout Indian Country. The start time is scheduled for 4 p.m. although there will be representation beginning at 8 a.m. A prayer vigil will be held at Birdsall Park in Temecula.

Pechanga Resort & Casino was chosen for this protest location because it is the site of the Tribal Leader’s Conference, where many of the nation’s tribal leaders will be listening to speakers including Larry Echohawk, Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs. Senator Daniel Inouye is expected to address the group via video. The forum is an opportune time to ask the elected tribal leaders in attendance what they plan on doing about the ever growing population of Indian individuals who have been subjected to and tormented by the unjust actions of tribal officials.

There is a growing concern regarding the bad governance practices of tribal officials which, to date, have victimized thousands of individuals. The bad governance practices include; violations of laws committed in order to strip or deny individuals and targeted groups of the basic rights and privileges enumerated and guaranteed by tribal, state, and/or federal statutes. Elder Abuse is also a concern. In most instances, the victims of these bad governance practices are denied recourse against the tribal official perpetrators due to the fact that the officials invoke tribal sovereignty to escape prosecution. To wield sovereignty like a club on their own people, then use it as a shield to protect themselves is immoral and unethical.

There are tribes across our country, including the hosting nation, the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians that have terminated a significant portion of their tribal citizens. In California alone, nearly 2500 Indian people have been stripped of their tribal citizenship since the approval and expansion of Indian Gaming in 2000, stripping them of the right to vote, representation for their allotted tribal lands and both health care and per capita. The total of per capita theft in California is nearing the $500 million dollar mark after just six years. By the end of the first compacts, the total lost will top $1.2 billion dollars. 

At the rally will be representatives from numerous tribes who have victimized their people. Tribes such as the Snoqualmie Tribe of Washington State , the Jamul Indian Village , the Redding Rancheria, the Enterprise Rancheria, Picayune Rancheria and others including the Cherokee Nation of OK, which once owned slaves, have found it fitting to deny or strip its members of their basic rights.

These acts have violated the United States and Tribal Constitutions; the Bill of Rights; the Indian Civil Rights Act; and tribal laws which were specifically enacted to protect the basic rights of the Indian individual. An oversight hearing into the enforcement of ICRA has been requested.

However, tribes and tribal officials have, as a matter of course, invoked the tribes' sovereign immunity to escape prosecution for their actions in State or Federal Courts. As a result, the Courts have routinely dismissed the actions for lack of jurisdiction, and the victims of this "tribal abuse" find themselves with no recourse with which to hold tribal officials accountable for their corrupt acts and abuse of power.
We ask that you publicize the protest in your outlets and help to draw attention to these egregious acts.

James Fletcher....

I am still waiting to to to Pechanga with you to settle the issues of the corrupt pigs operating the 'animal farm'under color of sovereignty;committing crimes;all outside the scope of their authority.

Corruption is now systemic;edemic...The house of Pechanga is dirty and needs to be swept clean. I am amazed that since Pechanga is steeped in corruption and it is common knowledge; I am stunned that you are superintendent of B.I.A. Riverside.

Rogues, sham, council,chair,tribal attorney,enrollment committee,tribal police,dept of public unsafety;all working in concert;under collor;of bull-shit authority;all outside any legitimate scope of authority of their'positions;all are borne of lawlessness;corruption.

Your sister,Margaret Duncan(later identified by Fletcher as his aunt)
is guilty as hell of acting outside the scope of authority as a member of the sham enrollment committee. Your sister(later identified as aunt) insulted me personally and has stolen my membership and franchisements through her malice;her intentional acts of supterfuge. She, Ruth Masiel, Mary Magee, and Frances Miranda were especially malicious;assaulting me verbally..These malicious witches cannot deny that they acted outside the scope of their authority;under color of their authority. You see, a private investigator was present at that meeting. He was expressly hired to act as a witness. He was indeed witness to the personal verbal attacks;comments made by your sister (later identified as aunt);Margaret Duncan, Ruth Masie, Frances Miranda,and Mary Magee.

What the hell are you going to do? Is it your job to act under color of your authority as superintendent of B.I.A. to continue to shield;aid and abet these criminals? To run interference?

Victor, grandson of my father's oldest sistr did say corruption is deep and wide. I have asked you if you an honorable. I pray you are.

FOIA:

I..............,do hereby request all copies of the California Rolls.

You asked what I want you to do.....well...for starters...stop the thefts of per caps and other franchisements stolen by the corrupt rogues. Enrollment for everyone in my family......

B.I.A.Riverside's refusal to step in and stop crimes on Pechanga has given the rogues;thieves nd thugs posing as 'officials' free reign to abuse their victims.

The last time I was on Pechanga, Macarro sic'd tribal police on me. I insisted they call the sheriff. Well,lo and behold, the sheriff and his lackey were buddies of Gary Johnson;so called 'chief of tribal police. Are you naive? or colluding with these jackals?

I am here in California and I expect BIA to clean up the mess that exists on Pechanga. Reform is impossible from within. The whole system of corruption is so entrenced, the House of Pechanga needs outside intervention.

Do your job. BIA has breached its trust responsibility again and again. Do not consider railroading me. I have already released documents to many people regarding corrupt BIA and Pechanga.dionsn

Dear Governorschwarzennegger,

I am an american citizen who is a Pechanga blood-heir and land-heir.

HELP!

Pechanga is in a deep state of corruption;lawlessness. It is impossible to sweep out this;this entrenched corruption without your intervention. Corruption is now systemic;endemic. This corrupt culture of greed, avarice, lawlessness;practiced by rogues is not Pechanga culture. It is not Pechanga tradition.

Lawlessness rules, not rules of law. "Pechanga government" is a misnomer. Fact is;there is no government. Pechanga is just a sham;an empty shell. Anything that flows from corruption is corrupt;i.e.constitution after the fact;i.e. in 1979 blood were removed from rolls and no-bloods were enrolled by fraud. All with the complicity of rogues.

Rogues;corrupt blood and no-blood imposters seized control of Pechanga. 'rogue officials and tribal police'engage in committing crimes;civil rights,threats, intimidation with impunity under 'color'of sovereign immunity. Rogues systematically act outside the scope of any legitimate authority.

The birth-rights;property rights,franchisements of blood-heirs are being extinguished as as the result of diabolical machinations. (corporate strategy to squeeze shareholders to 'enhance' profits.

I beg you;please intervene asap. Pechanga needs to be placed under federal probe;protection. Rogues who represent themselve as 'officials' are nothing less than thugs and thieves..the mob never had it so goo.

Sovereignty is a cruel joke for victims of rogues who act under'color' of sovereignty. Time is of the essence.

JMacarro@pechanga.nsn.govMark needs to tone down challenges in press...Pehanga in danger of termination..do not underestimate U.S. terminating in "best interests" of U.S....breaches of criteria to remain recognized.

Recall of props not out of question...

still waiting for justice...

Pechanga Tribe is not living person;therefore, crimes have been committed by corrupt persons acting in concert to commit crimes;which in effect render Pechanga in danger of being terminated. Refusal to enroll is a violation of of one of the criter4iato not be terminated. Further, only persons reelated or descended by blood are entitled to be enrolled; imposters who are enrolled by fraud are committing theft by fraud....with the cooperation of corrupt'officials' and blood relatives who have been stealing from their victims.
Crimes committed in Tribe's name must be committed by person or persons hiding behind veil of "sovereignty immunity." In other words, thieves blamed 'the tribe for their acts of criminal activities. Sovereign immunity does not cover crimes under color of sovereignty. Under direction of Bureau of Indian Affairs and complicity and conspiracy of virgil
townsend, Tribal activities violate law and criteria for recognition. Criminal liability of rogue'ovvicials' are ultiately liable for tribal crimes committed under color of authority and are not covered by immunity. Thieves of Pechanga did engage in conspiracies to commit crimes of fraud and civil rights crimes against certain blood heirs of Pechanga by various machinations;i.e.'moratorium. refusal to enroll,thereby stealing funds thast rightfully belonged to blood heirs of Pechanga in favor of non-bloods;impostors who benefited;knowingly stealing monies, health and welfare benefits,etc thereby robbing legitimate heirs of their entitlements. Rogue'officials,'colluding with corrupt Bureau of Indian Affairs Superintendent;Virgil Townsend, knowingly harbored no-Indian-Bloods;thereby,knowingly conspiring with impostors who have illegally benefitted from their imposture. continued....

Further, mGar7 Johnson,chief of Pechanga Rangers, did impersonate a sheriff;did assume a posture of someone with police powers;under color of his mickey mouse position of chief of Pechanga Rangers. Further,Gary Johnson, then conspired with his buddies from the Temecula Sheriff's department to have .......falsely arrested for trespassing on common interests on the Pechanga Reservation. Gary Johnson and his cronies from the Temecula Sheriff's department did knowingly operate in concert to commit civil rights crimes agains...... Gary Johnson falsely drew a line in the dirt and proceeded to collude with dirty sheriffs that there was a division betweeen common interest on the Pechanga Reservation and that of land heirs...However, In Indian land law, there is no separation between tribal and common interest shares. Every owner shares interest in the total land base. Rogues of Pechanga are liable for crimes committed at 'Officials;rogues committing crimes under color of tribal sovereignty immunity. "Officials"
and their co-conspirators who are impostors posing as Indians to illegally enrich themselves as well. Brothers Macarro have continually under color color of sovereignty immunity, acted in conspiracies with other theies to commit criminal acts under color of their micky mouse color of authority.

You mean you got a letter of exclusion right?

Anonymous said...

Documents date and time stamped; proof of delivery.

Nothing borne of corruption is legal. Flim flam ....government? who you kidding...

Witnesses to crimes.

Chain of collusion;conspiracy.

Natural for criminals to deflect to draw attention from themselves.(guess what? I studied political science too!)

Nothing to worry about ...take it easy criminals....

By the way, 'letters' of exclusion are illegal..

They are; in fact, violations of owners' human, and civil rights; property rights....I guess idiots did not read 'owners rights' date and time stamped by BIA.

Phonies enrolled illegally and sitting on council are criminals committing fraud;theft of funds.

Lawless 'laws'

Board of directors acting like puffed up phonies.

Pechanga Development isn't supposed to wag people's tail. Blood of Pechanga are supposed to do the wagging of Development.

Pechanga, in its present state,is nothing more than a rabbit hole harboring criminals.

Moratorium is a violation of one criterion of criteria for enrollment. Enrollment is every January. Ahem! Surely 'attorneys' of moral turpitude know this and choose to ignore this.

Laura Miranda, you are NOT blood of the tribe. Unless...you produce bogus documents...ask fletcher for copies.

Jackals not legitimate blood of Pechanga are enrolled by fraud.
Another criterion violated is the constitution. Lawlessness is the rule not the exception.

I am educated. Unlike our poor ancestors, I know what has been going on.

John, just in case you didn't know; you have committed theft of funds. You were told long ago turpitude is grounds for disbarment.

Mark, those acting lessons sure do come in handy. Ah...I have a degree in communications. Here's a tip for you...when you lie, check the eyeballs. When you stare like a paralyzed mullet with your bubble eyes..you lying sucker.

Reading you like a book.

Suggestion: When representing your ousted group in the media, please
1. Don't put your most tattooed person with prison tats in front of the camera.
2. Make sure the person speaking has their pants pulled up and are not exposing their underwear
3. Don't wear Mexican blankets in an effort to "look" tribal.
4. Don't wear plaid or wear one of those stupid necklace things that Mark M wears. It scream "I want to look tribal, but I'm not."
5. Speak intelligibly. There's nothing worse than a rambling idiot on camera that just rants off a copy of a few of the posts above.
6. Have some note cards with bullet points.
7. Don't wear sunglasses. It is a total disconnect for anyone looking.
8. Dress well. Don't represent yourself as ignorant dregs that haven't had a bath in months.
9. wear clothes that fit. There's nothing worse than a short 300 pound person in revealing clothes shouting for a cause.
10. If you are going to hold up signs, make them bold, large font, and not on cardboard. All of the words need to be spelled correctly.
11. Don't respond to the insults by tribal members. Video tape them.
12. For maximum effect, sneak into Pow Wow in July, and do a flash mob protest with one media person present that is in the know.

for ALL nations...for ALL chukchansi people said...

i would suggest that EVERYONE go to youtube, search for video reviews of casinos belonging to tribes such as picayune, pechanga, table mountain, redding, san pasqual etc. that have violated the rights of their people, and POST, POST, POST in the comment section.

many people frequenting these casinos have no idea what has--and is--going on with the tribal, civil, and human rights violations of our people...it may be good to post info regarding the upcoming protest at pechanga as well...

i myself was disgusted to find that the la lakers had practiced at the recreation center at pechanga in october 2010, although i knew they/the staple center have a sponsorship by pechanga...i posted my displeasure, you may be sure...
