OPechanga U LEARNING about Tribal Disenrollments, Moratorium & Corruption

YOU can learn about the corruption and abuses of civil rights in Indian Country with a bit of reading and some "course work" on the injustices to Native Americans from their OWN TRIBES.  Most important, YOU can share with family, friends and government.  Help them earn a diploma for knowledge earned and SHARED.
Disenrollments En Masse are NOT
There has been so much coverage of the latest (meaning last two years) rash of tribal disenrollments at Nooksack, Grand Ronde, Hopland to name a few. 

I thought it would be good to bring some historical context to the issue.

In this post, I put up links to some of  the many stories that have ended with over 11,000 Native Americans, suffering harm from their tribes, coupled with the failure of the BIA/Interior/Federal Governments to handle their trust responsibilities.

Each link will take you to a blog post, and each blog post can be shared on your FB pages, Twitter and Pinterest.   I hope it helps.  I'll revise as I get it together, there is a search bar on the upper left of the blog, search your tribe.

Look at all of these disenrollments after the Casinos opened. Obviously it is about money and power on the part of the Tribal Leaders. The hurtful words and gestures by our own relatives who have been part of our lives for ever and we used to sit, laugh, drink, and eat together and now they flip us off, threaten us on the road, drive by our homes and yell or shoot their guns, all so that the Tribal Leader can continue to steal from the people and banish rightful members. These loyal followers are fools, because when their leaders go down, they will tumble along with them. It is so shameful how they act, and I know their ancestors are highly disappointed in them.

I really hope that the Gangs that were accused of the Murders in Pala
go after their accusers and confront them or whatever???.
That would be Robert Smith and Theresa Nieto.
If it was the Escondido Gangs, I am sure that Theresa Nieto and her husband know some of them, that's where they were raised and went to school. So the Gangbangers are their Homeys.
Just a thought.

They banish real Indians, yet they elect criminals to the Council like convicted Felons like that slimey Basquez. Wasn't his father part of the group that pushed for disenrollment? Wait until the economy takes another big drop or Calif allows online gambling. Goodbye big per cap Checks. How much water is that huge new addition going to use California voters? We have to restrict our use and let our grass and plants die, yet they get to add a WATER PARK.? REALLY.?

And also Dion Perez was also raised in Escondido and went to the same schools as his first cousin, Theresa (Eagleton)Nieto and her Husband
Roy (Roybal)Nieto, so he also would more than likely know some of the Escondido Gang Members.
So don't tell me that the Pala EC is not involved somehow with the
Murders and the crimes being committed in Pala.

If that is true, then Dion had a hand in his own brother's (Bruce) murder. That would be horrible, just horrible, I hope and pray that it is not true about Dion,but I do feel Robert is responsible for all of it, because of his lack of good leadership, and the evil he perpetuates.

Hi everyone,
I'm so excited my husband is back after he have left me for another woman.
My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or call him on: +2348072370762..I am Donna Murray by name and I reside here in United States..Contact Dr.Unity for help via email: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com .
