In a response to Cathy Cory, a disenrolled Indian from the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians, a despicable tribe that has harmed a THOUSAND Native Americans, Graton Rancheria Chairman Greg Sarris denounced tribal disenrollment.
At the California Indian Education Conference in Santa Rosa, he encouraged tribes to stop continuing colonization practices of destruction and to stop all disenrollments. He stated tribes should be "welcoming their people home" .
This is NOT a popular position as you can imagine, especially since so many more tribes are doing this. He did receive enthusiastic applause.
Thank you Chairman Sarris, for standing up.
