There will be a Symposium on Sovereignty and Identity in Oklahoma March 1. John Gomez Jr. civil rights activist and a disenrolled member of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians from Temecula CA will be on a panel discussing Contemporary Perspectives: Current legal issues surrounding tribal membership
and Indian identity. Mr. Gomez represents the American Indian Rights & Resources Organization
I'm sure the topics will include tribes not following their own constitutions. Disenrollments are an epidemic in California's Indian Gaming Country. Tribal terrorism is on the rise as tribal member fear speaking out for justice.
Additional participants in Jon Velie, who will discuss the Cherokee Freedmen issue. The Freedmen are descendents of the slaves dragged along the "Trail of Tears"...as property.
