Request for Recording Artist Jill Scott to Cancel Concert at Pechanga Resort & Casino Over Human Rights Violations

Phone: (212) 707-2000
Dear Ms. Jill Scott,

We are writing this letter in the hope that you will cancel your show at the Pechanga Resort and Casino, scheduled for August 18, 20017.

I’d like to make you aware of the disgraceful actions that are happening on the Pechanga Reservation.   The Pechanga Tribal Council, led by Mark Macarro, has stripped the citizenship from 25%   Pechanga Tribal Members, including the descendants of the original headman of the Pechanga Tribe.  They most recently disenrolled the Paulina Hunter descendants.  Paulina Hunter was an original allottee of Pechanga and her family still resides on the reservation, where apartheid is still practiced, 20 years after it was abolished in South Africa.


I am sure that the decimation of culture, history and beliefs are not within your value system.

Stand with the disenrolled members of Pechanga.   There may be a protest during your performance date and we are informing the entertainment press about the request for acts not to perform at Pechanga.  Many of us enjoy your  performances and would love to watch your show, elsewhere.    Please do not do your show at Pechanga.  Tell the PDC that you won’t play at a location that violates the civil and human rights of it own people

Thank you for your support.  In the past, Bill Cosby REFUSED to perform at Chukchansi if Fresno because of that tribe’s disenrollment action
