Mark Macarro's Pechanga Tribe: Standing With STANDING ROCK, But NOT THEIR OWN. #NODAPL

I find some solace in the fact the the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians have gathered together for a photo of support of those real protesters/protectors of Sioux water rights and protecting sacred sites as we see here:

Indian Day at Pechanga
It makes hundreds of us wonder, WHY didn't they do the same for their OWN people? In fact, some of the yahoos in the back of the meeting room threatened to dig up our relatives from the Pechanga Cemetery.  Do THEY really care about sacred sites? We wrote about Redding Rancheria Chairman Potter who went to Standing Rock a dozen years after he was part of a group that forced a family to disinter their mother and grandmother.

Is it because they feared speaking truth to power?  Or, was it because they only thought of enriching themselves at the expense of so many elders and children of other families?

The first picture is eerily similar to the photo below, where the family of Lawrence Madariaga, my cousin,gathered to honor him after he walked on. Some of those in the 1st picture would come to Lawrence for help, for money, for diapers and milk, yet turned their back on he and his family when they needed REAL support, not a photo op.  Or do we hope that it's a good start?

               

Here is a picture of Lawrence and Sophie Madariaga's granddaughters, ACTUALLY AT STANDING ROCK spending two full days with #NoDAPL protectors:

STANDING ROCK


Find it in your heart Pechanga people, to DO the Right thing and bring ALL the people home, where they belong.  You know how to find them...come to the reservation, there's a bunch of the family that live there...unlike you.

Why does almost everyone in the tribe look white? Oh that's right they are lineal so even 1/32 and 1/64 are enrolled while most tribes are at least 1/8 to be enrolled. So all the 1/16 who are not enrolled have more blood than a lot of enrolled Pechanga members. Even the chairman didn't know he was native or step foot on the Rez until he was in his 20's. Didn't Mark marry a tribal member to get in good with Rez natives then leave her after her and her family brought him into Pechanga.

I have it on good authority that Marcy used to tell people when he was in high school that he was Italian, One of our cousins who when to the same school om Colton remembers him saying this.
