STRONG WORDS here from Democrat candidate Charly Mercado Flores against disenrollment. This is what we need to happen, more of these kind of negative statements on disenrollment. Many will say that it's a tribal matter, or sovereignty issue. I'm mindful that South Africa was ALSO a sovereign nation.
The Native American people have been thru forced christianization, indoctrination, acculturation, assimilation, termination, relocation, and now Tribal disenrollment. Tribal Disenrollment destroys their connection to their ancestors, their cultural heritage, and their traditions.
Thousands of Disenrolled Native Americans have been stripped or denied the basic due process and equal protection rights provided for in the United States Constitution, the Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968, and Tribal laws. The number of civil rights violations in Indian Country has reached epidemic proportions and we must put an end to this practice.
