New BIA Chosen Chukchansi "Leadership" Team: Disenrolled from 2011-2013 are OFFICIAL MEMBERS Again.

We received this short message from Chukchansi people, which is good news for some.  What the "leaders" should now do is re-instate ALL disenrolled people.  Bring EVERYONE home.  SO WHAT if it reduces per cap?  The resulting good press, and good karma will bring more business to Chukchansi. 

It will all the tribe to point at other tribes and SHOW how it can be done.  Chukchansi can be the real LEADER in Indian Country and stop all this foolishness.   Congratulations to those who have been restored....NOW fight for your sisters and brothers.

Yesterday at the Chukchansi monthly tribal meeting (held by BIA chosen council) an announcement was made that the dis enrolled from 2011 to 2013 are now official tribal members again BEGINNING NOW.

I agree, good acts on the committee's part will bring more business to their casino, just as evil is contagious so too is good and this one good act of bringing back disenrolled members could be a beginning of better times for all Native Americans. They also need to get rid of those greedy tribal lawyers, in fact maybe now the Chuckchansi Tribe can sue their lawyers for causing this issue in the first place.

Did Chuckchansi see the writing on the wall and fix it before the government comes in and fixes it for them.

No, some of the leadership were caught up in the disenrollment...

We could take this as a lesson. Take back what was taken? Corrupt actions erode or we could settle inside.

When do I get a letter in the mail saying i'm a Member again?

Don't wait for a letter. Go to your tribal office and get verification of reinstatement. I'm sure from your perspective you aren't really reinstated until you start receiving benefits again. This is the question you should ask: When will I receive member benefits?

In the meantime there is an announcement in writing and we can all see that change is coming. Let's hope the momentum grows quickly and reinstatement announcements become a frequent occurrence throughout Indian Country.

Welp, dont expect Reggie to pay you. Per Cap is being paid by the McDonald coucil & they don't recognize Reggie's decisions as valid. The BIA only recognized the 2010 council for purposes of dealing with the government contracts. I think it's hilarious that Reggie is reversing the dis-enrollments, and he was behind it all to begin with. Once his 11 million (that he stole) runs out, and he can't pay for votes what will he do then?

Your absolutely right! Just because Reggie says it doesn't make it accurate, Mc Donald is paying per cap. All of those waiting for re-enstatment should beware of reggies greedy schemes. He gets your votes and then dis enrolls you again, because your nothing to him but a rock in his pocket and he would rather have the cash. You have a better shot at being re enrolled with Mc Donald, and actually being recognized.

i heard a few weeks back that patricia eames (enrollment specialist at picayune and lewis relation) was sanctioned and/or removed by tex's faction awhile back for violations regarding the enrollment files...i assume the files are under their (tex's) jurisdiction...anyone care to provide further detail?

That is inaccurate, that's old rumors spread by Tracy, Karen, and Nancy. The enrollment specialist is still there working with files/documents from BIA, and continues to work hand in hand with the rightful enrollment committee

The lewis faction had to SURRENDER to the fact that the dis enrollments were poisoning the tribe as a whole. Tex will not be holding on to leadership too much longer. He has pissed off the local community so much that the sheriff will be glad to enforce the restraining orders to get rid of his militant encampment he has turned the tribal lands into. The dis enrollment war will not end until Chukchansi faces the fact that we used names fraudulently to get the big money to build the casino. Chukchansi needs to face all their wrongs and set things right.

What has Tex done, personally to piss of the community? He was not on council years ago he is just stepping into someone else mess. The tribe did use names frauduantly for money your right about that, but that was not Tex. And where do you get off speaking for a local community your not part of????? Chukchansis "local" community is Coarsegold, not Fresno,or mariposa

a full page paid ad appeared today in the sunday fresno bee...this ad, paid for by the bia appointed reggie lewis council (a decision still in dispute and under appeal by the mcdonald/ayala faction) indicated that all those chukchansi enrolled in 2010 would now be recognized by the tribe in "the way" of the ancestors...what the lewis council DIDN'T address was the OVER 600 chukchansi people arbitrarily and capriciously disenrolled from picayune rancheria between 2000 and 2009, fully a third of the chukchansi people, who REMAIN disenrfranchised....

"the way" of our ancestors? i think not...picayune will not be honoring "the way" of our chukchansi ancestors until ALL are brought back to the tribe--NOT just the 250 or so dismembered since 2000!!!

even more telling, the ad's referral to thanking the tribal members and "STAKEHOLDERS" for their support...i believe the "STAKEHOLDERS" are truly who this ad was undertaken to manipulate, with the chukchansi people a distant second...

to the chukchansi tribal council--WHICHEVER may ultimately represent (?) the tribe when all is said and done...TRULY follow "the way" of our ancestors, and do so for our people...do what is right:

!!!bring the people--ALL the people--home to picayune...where we belong!!!
