Tribal Disenrollments, Moratorium & Corruption: Indian Country Disaster

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.  



YOU can share with family, friends and government.  Help them earn a diploma for knowledge earned and SHARED.
     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, each blog post can be shared on your FB pages, Twitter and Pinterest. Sharing it means FEWER people can say "We didn't KNOW". There is a search bar on the upper left of the blog.

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 .

Next level disenrollment - Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria
Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria Next Level Disenrollment

Culprits such as Chairman Greg Sarris are few among California's sovereign nations tribal leadership. Thousands of California Indians have been violated by those few.

Aside from the couple of reams of documentation this boils down to a 'he said / she said' case. I said he did it on purpose, he said it was a mistake; either way he did it. Chairman Sarris does not get to cheat and hurt tribal members, not even by mistake. At a minimum he is guilty of gross malfeasance for his failure to take responsibility for his mistake long before now.

Chairman Sarris is highly educated (Ph.D.). Chairman Sarris acted with malice and forethought. When questioned by the 9th Circuit Court, under oath, Chairman Sarris testified he made a mistake.

Everybody makes mistakes, it's what you do after a mistake, (what lengths he's gone to avoid accountability), that matter. As far as mistakes go, this was a dozy, it caught the attention of the 9th Circuit Court.

The Chairman received no disciplinary, no censure and he never apologized to me; as a matter of fact subsequent to being ousted from my duly elected Office of Tribal Secretary I complained and received a 5 year disciplinary sanction. Wrongful prosecution. I served more than eight (8) years on that 5 year sentence.

Chairman Greg Sarris is the leader of a sovereign people, a small group of 1300+ persons, many elderly and children. This is no giant bureaucracy. Chairman Greg Sarris is accountable for his abuses and offences. By ousting me, Sarris invalidated every vote, and by definition, corrupted the government; and with the wrongful prosecution established ominous control - 'Do what he wants and don't talk back.'

I have been severely harmed and cheated of irreclaimable years of my voice, vote, benefits; my mother, father and sister have gone to their graves. I was exiled, kicked out and continue under threat of being charged with harassment and being kicked out again. I am not to write letters or approach / confront him in public. I know other tribal members fear it could happen to them. I know Chairman Sarris's offences and abuses are abhorent to other sovereign peoples.

At the time of my ousting I was a clam shell bead artist, one of 8 shell artists featured in Winter 2002/2003 News from Native California art magazine. Most of the 80s and 90s I worked in prisons; with familiarization of bureaucracies, police states, and long legal battles for rights.
