Indian Country Today Chooses APARTHEID Reservation Leader as One of 50 Faces of Indian Country

The estimable news site Indian Country Today has chosen Mark Macarro and his 2nd wife Holly Macarro as one of 2016's 50 Faces of Indian Country .  Well, as my cousin reminded me, Time Magazine chose Hitler as their man of the year, and Ayatollah Khomenei, too, so I guess there is precedent.  Disclosure:  I have been published in ICT , thank you very much.

Now don't get all hot and bothered saying I compared Macarro to Hitler, get real. But Macarro is a tyrant, he does run an apartheid reservation, he does support segregation on the Temecula Indian Reservation.

Macarro is quoted in the glowing piece: 


“Our Pay├│mkawichum/Luise├▒o Bands have endured much in the span of America’s history—especially when so many did so much to make us disappear,”

This is exceptionally rich, considering Macarro is responsible for making over 20% of the tribe DISAPPEAR, via disenrollment of two large families in 2004 and 2006.   

Holly Macarro has been working DILIGENTLY to steal water rights from reservation allottees that have been stripped of citizenship rights.  Effective? Not so much, as her attempts have been stalled by a few of us who had to stay at Holiday Inn Express, rather than the first class accommodations the $250,000 a year Pechanga pays her...uh, her firm.  So, it's been over $1 million..for failure.

Did the sand of time cloud the judgement of the ICT staff? Or was the NICE advertisement (pg.17) paid by Pechanga a factor?  

Mark Macarro, one of the 50 faces of Indian Country, but not a good face.

Instead of making and individual decisions and making the band follow through or you could be next is not our band custom and tradition. For a band member to think they can take away others rights and it's honorable is not right either. When a band takes the time to announce it's intent, and then individuals go against the announcement of the whole band is shameful and dishonest. How can a band be allowed to adopt an individual, but can't keep an enrolled member in the band if others go against the band and threaten others they could be next. Temecula, Luiseno , Pechanga, WeRone
Face the TRUTH! Our Ancestors and their heirs deserve the same across the board.

As long as votes can be controlled by fear...Macarro will be in power.

If the tribe doesn't care that the Macarros are soaking them and misusing funds....why should anyone else?

There was a time that tribes had many warriors that would never let this evil perpetuate among their people, but now these warriors have turned to passive check cashers. They can't afford to do what is right, they need their percap because they have nothing else. They have sold their true Native ways for the white man's greed, they are disgracing their ancestors by wimping up and selling out.

How do we convince them to do the right thing?

Or do we just give up and embarrass our ancestors and our children?

It is such a sad thing to see that the totality of the Indian nations have strayed so far off of the path that the actions of a person or tribe are overlooked. It is the illusion of power and money that blind the people. As a believer of Jesus and a reader of Gods word I have learned that those who are not a believer of Christ will believe the lies and people who tell them, as those who have not been reborn in Christ have a different father...

Smith and Macarro are the TWIN SONS of satin.

He should stop PRC Table Games Department from robbing his people blind. That running joke is on him. Everything comes full circle.

Robbing people blind is KARMA, and denying the TRUTH will also have an outcome. WeRone!

Robbing people of their heritage and not honoring ALL our ancestors is the biggest crime!
