Apartheid at Pechanga Reservation. Yes, Segregation Too. YES, Senators, it's WORSE than Redskins Nickname

 We have written before on the APARTHEID system in force at Pechanga  . 

APARTHEID as described by the dictionary is:
a•part•heid
2. any system or practice that separates people according to race, caste, etc.

Pechanga is doing just that, determining that families with historical ties to the origins of the reservation are ‘no longer pure’ in their eyes. They may be Temecula Indian, but “they aren’t Pechanga.” Even though the expert hired BY Pechanga using facts in evidence determined that we were.


Here is what Pechanga members who have been stripped of their citizenship in the tribe have lost:

• Lost the right to vote
• Lost their rights to healthcare provided by the Pechanga government.
• Their children can no longer attend tribal schools, in fact some kids were RIPPED from the school by Tribal Rangers.
• They can no longer be buried in the reservation cemetery with their relatives.
• Have no access to tribal facilities
• Are not protected by the Tribal Rangers. Or in some cases FROM the tribal Rangers

Here is a copy of the letter that was presented to those people living on the reservation who are called "non-members" even though most are living on land that was given to their ancestor when the reservation began, roughly 90 years before council member Russell "Butch" Murphy was adopted into the tribe.


Threatening letter by Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro and the Tribal Council including Adopted Member Russell "Butch" Murphy    Click on photo to enlarge

The threat is very clear: Fine of $5,000 and exclusion from their own property. THAT is APARTHEID, pure and simple. The tribe is trying to force residents who own property OFF the reservation. Remember when they tried to Steal allottee’s water rights?  three years ago, and now trying to do the same thing.

Mark Macarro, have you NO shame?  Isn't paying your wife to write bills excluding Indians going too far?

It's interesting that the band allows this and allows a corrupt faction to threaten others when it can't even follow custom, tradition or constitution or bylaws. The band forgot that nothing would be there if "all" band members where not accepted or allowed by the reservations ancestors? Accepted like Butch Murphy right Mark? Who else is accepted in the corrupt act? How did you get the land you say is yours? Accept "all" would be more acceptable inside and out.

Basquez need to prove who they are and how they acquired their rservation land, same with Masiel. Making meth on reservation is ok?

When Irene Raymond's sister worked at the BIA she doctored paper work on the allotment they claim as theirs. If it looked into you'll find it Garcia allotment.

Exactly! Now it's time to fix it. I believe they took land and now claim more rights. R we gonna fix it inside the band or allow corrupt acts to keep going outside and lying.

Reportedly,there were names added on to the 1940 Pechanga census records of people, from the Basquez/Masiel family who were born after 1940, handwritten, by someone who worked in the BIA office, Irehne Basquez was the one who did it?

Reportedly, the Basquez/Masiels wanted to use this census as a base roll for the tribe.

The Pechanga bands base roll was reestablish in 1977 again. Custom and tradition was also followed and "all" were enrolled. Bylaws and constitution was created and voted to enact."all means all" nothing else matters even if people disagree. Noone is more Indian@Pechanga, all have rights, "all". Corrupt acts need to be stopped by the band, not tolerated by the bands.

The allotted Indians on the Pechanga reservation were certified Temecula Village Indians. They are Temecula Indians on the Pechanga Reservation. One in the same!!!

Good job at shining another light through of the arrogance, corrupt acts allowed to take place @ the Pechanga bands Barry my head in the sand rally. If it happens to you or a loved one and you felt the same it would even be worse. Thanks

What is that..... oh yeah, its Mexican laughter. Funny how often a persons real heritage creeps in. Interesting on how many Tribal people don't speak there native language (in this case Luiseno), but out pops Mexican..... makes one wonder about there real heredity.

Anonymous said...

It's not funny that the Luiseno language was being resurfaced to the whole band "all" including the chairman. Then the chairman thinks its ok to practice apartheid acts and disallow children, Luiseno children to be kicked out of the reservation classes and not learn along with others. Sad for the whole band. ALL BAND MEMBERS "ALL"

The real thing that makes people wonder is why disenrolling families, then practicing apartheid acts is ok? Wondering more why it's ok to say "all" means all unless you don't stay quite and allow apartheid acts to be forced or you can be disenrolled also. That in itself is another apartheid act. Then send the corrupt actors to tell others outside the band that its ok? Jajajajajajaja
Unless it was you or your family being targeted by greedy corrupt actors. Bet you wouldn't laugh then. Bajajajajaja

What Actors Macarro and the corrupt faction forget to tell the band is his lies and forcing Apartheid acts on Allotted Indian families at Pechanga is not secure for the whole band. He is willing to tell lies and try to cover corrupt bullying acts to congress, the same people who want the band to run itself. The light is shining in the band that we don't need. TIME TO SAY NO MORE GREED, BRING BACK ALL!!!! OR LET THE LYING ACTORS PUSH THE BAND FURTHER INTO NEGATIVE ACTS. APARTHEID ACTS, NOT ALLOWING ALL IS NOT RIGHT!!!

Remember president Jackson made an entry to the Choctaws settlement: "Brothers listen... Your Great Father will give [this land] to you forever that it may belong to you and your children while you exist as a nation from all interruptions....Peace invites you thus annoyances will be left behind. within your limit no state or territorial authority will be permitted. intruders, traders, and above all ardent spirits so destructive to health and morals will be kept from among you only as the law and ordinances of your nation may sanction their admissions."

Anonymous said...

Actor "Macarro" forgetting that threats to disenrolling if you don't allow this corrupt faction of intruders to do this it will be you and yours next. Then the corrupt actor saying no we have not disenrolled an Allotted family. Wrong!!!

Its getting better showing the true liars what they bring out for anyone anywhere to see.

Just curious, does anyone else understand the second sentence of the third paragraph to be an acknowledgement by the letter's author to the dis-enrolled as a "tribal member" still? "Uninvited or unwanted presence at any time upon the allotment of other tribal members may result in complaint of trespass to the Tribal Council which has been directed by the Membership to permanantly exclude trespassers from the reservation for such violations." The part that reads "upon the allotment of other tribal members.." Just curious, my OCD you know.

Refuse to use a made up term for the ILLEGAL REMOVAL OF FEDERALLY RECOGNIZED TRIBAL MEMBERS.

Life's not fair, that's why there is judgement, justice, retribution and vindication.
