1956 Pechanga Documents Show Hunter Family Indeed Pechanga Members and Mark Macarro LIES About OUR FAMILY

During the 2006 disenrollment (stripping of tribal citizenship) proceedings against my family, the PAULINA HUNTER Descendants, we were given 30 days to find all possible paperwork to "prove" we belonged to the tribe. Here's an example of what we had to look for.

The tribe ignored their own documents, including depositions and affidavits from people who knew Paulina Hunter as a Pechanga tribal member (depositions were taken in the Luiseno language via interpreter.)  We have a document from Mary Hunter Miller, Paulina's daughter in 1956, an application for a surplus house which recognizes her as a tribal member.   The "surplus demountable house" is still standing on the reservation, on our families allotment.

Notice the language on page 3, item 8: Describing the allotment.  Our family is one of the FEW remaining on their original Pechanga reservation land.   NO TRIBAL SIGNATURE was needed by the governing body, whose names are on the document, INCLUDING Pechanga's vaunted elder Antonio Ashman.   Mary Hunter Miller RELIED on Antonio Ashman, Armand Valencia and Frank Cantura to SUPPORT her request, but their approval was not necessary because the LAND was ALLOTTED, not assigned or purchased.

This document puts to lie the claim from Pechanga Tribal Chairman Mark Macarro that we came after the casino.    This application for my great grandmother was for a home where she could escape the smog of the San Gabriel Valley by coming back to the reservation, not for casino money to come 40 years later.  Our family was on their allotment before child molester Vince Ibanez wrote his letter from prison against our family and well before any Basquez or Masiel

Would Macarro even KNOW the truth? That his ancestors are related to Hunters? Not the Mexican side..

What tribe is Raymond Basquez really from? Or is he just 100 per cent Maxican? Didn't he run recently for chief? How soon before Mark kicks that whole family out?

He should be in prison with Jennie and ruth.

Keep sharing the truth, that's why the Bad Actors are loosing Recognition outside. Until the the Bad Actors realize the story they are broadcasting, their heirs will face the truth before them.

How come we don't see more from the Hunters or Apis?

Where did they go?

We are still here. We do not have the luxury of money or free time to spend on this fight because we have to work to support ourselves and our families. I would also say that just because you do not see posts by the members of my family does not mean that they have given up. They are there. I want to know why you are so interested in my family? It looks like you are thinking something not very nice about them. Until you walk in our shoe's please do not say something that you will regret.

What i heard of Raymond Basquez from elders not only from Pechanga but from other reservations. The Basquez might be Indian but they come from south america possibly Chile. You don't have to take my word ask some elders from other reservations.
