Less Than Two Weeks Remaining For Open Enrollment to Pechanga Tribe: Get your applications in NOW

Open Enrollment to the Pechanga Tribe, according to their constitution, is in January. Call for Application. If they tell you there is a moratorium, simply ask them how that could be with the constitution saying open enrollment. The Pechanga Tribal Council has ruled that the people can't overrule the constitution on membership issues, therefore, the moratorium would be illegal.

The Pechanga Bylaws and Constitution provide for OPEN ENROLLMENT each January, despite their claims that their is a moratorium. If you believe you belong in the tribe, you should request an application. If the tribe believes in their guiding constitution, you should rightfully be enrolled if you can prove your bloodlines

The address from the Pechanga website for contacting their Tribal Government is:
Pechanga Enrollment Committee
PO BOX 1477
Temecula, CA 92593

(951)770-6000
fax: (951) 695-1778

The constitution and bylaws of the 'Temecula Band of Luiseno Mission Indians', sometimes referred to as the 'Pechanga Band of Missions Indians' (from the preamble of the Band's constitution and bylaws), under Article VIII, 'MEETINGS', states the following:

"THE SIMPLE MAJORITY OF MEMBERS PRESENT SHALL RULE AND DECIDE IN ALL MATTERS OF GOVERNMENT AND BUSINESS OF THE BAND, UNLESS STIPULATED OTHERWISE IN THESE BYLAWS."

Well the Band's constitution and bylaws under Article II states the following:

"THE MEMBERSHIP ENROLLMENT WILL BE OPENED THE FIRST MONTH OF EACH YEAR BY THE BAND'S ENROLLMENT COMMITTEE."

So it is stipulated that enrollment is every January.

A tribal member may come here to say that because the enrollment committee is accepting applications, that means enrollment is open and also that because minors of tribal members and newborns of tribal members can be enrolled this month also means the enrollment is open.

But the enrollment is not truly open unless everyone who meets the requriements to be in the tribe is allowed to enroll, now!

Merely accepting applications if and and when the never ending moratorium on new adult members ever ends is not open enrollment.

picture of Michael Salina's grandmother and him were in the times. The Los Angeles Times staff writer was Louis Sahagun.

The photographer was Irfan Khan.
The title of the article was "Casino revives Tribe's Old Rivalries."

I am a computer dummy...but...if I can figure out how to copy and send via this site ...or..maybe John Gomez has a print? La Times?

Due process right was violated. Tribe was supposed to inform parties in detail; in writing, explaining all points considered.

Parties, also, were to be provided in writing, explaining in detail, their rights of appeal to the BIA. (I do not know if appeal to Interior was also supposed to be detailed in writing.)

Bobbie LaMere and the rest of the enrollment committee committed fraud;perjury when they lied in the preparation of answer to case.

Hmmm...seeing that picture triggered a memory. Actually it was the date.
Remember the court date?
The 2nd date?
The next day, there was a tribe/media event at UCLA.

What was ironic about that event was the fact that there were several humans sitting behind me talking about being enrolled by Pechanga. These people were not Indians;Pechanga descendants. Apparently, it was going to be a 'business arrangement.'

I tried not to be obvious, however, when I addressed the audience, I noticed a craggy white man sitted behind two swarthy 'pharisees.'

Now, I thought that was so strange. Pechanga railroading a group of Indians without due process...and...at the same time illegally 'enrolling' non-Indians.

The other irony is that the 'enrollment committee' itself was rigged with illegally enrolled who would not be able to prove descendancy.

To top that off...Russell Gerard Murphy was smug as hell; his imposture known by all but safe. How's that for injustice?
