A must read letter, from Native American Activist and research expert Emilio Reyes to Amy Dutschke, Regional Director of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
He exposes the BIA's inaction and their deliberate violations of their trust responsibility to Native Americans of San Pasqual descent.
When asked WHY he is so involved, his response:
Today, in honor of my ancestors, my cousins at the San Pasqual Reservation, and the friends I have made from this tribe, I have given the privilege to be part of a challenge, a challenge that no one has been able to complete since the year 1909. With the help of attorney , Alexandra McIntosh, and the support of family and friends I will help them fight until we win. So here I am, because I stand for what is right. Because green federal dollars will not control our traditional ways, and because sovereignty can only be use as a nation to protect our people and not to abuse our people.
