Kamala Harris Accepts APARTHEID Leader Mark Macarro's ENDORSEMENT

Well, Kamala Harris lost MY vote. Mark Macarro has led the ABUSE of civil/human rights of Native Americans from his Pechanga tribe in Temecula, CA. We have reported about the APARTHEID and Segregation. He disenrolled 2 lg. families to control his opposition and keep the tribe under his thumb

YES..SHE KNEW  And she had to apologize to Native Americans, remember? Democrats have ALWAYS supported the apartheid policies of disenrolling tribes

Mark Macarro is NOT a good man, but Kamala Harris is PROUD to have this TYRANT's approval.   Macarro doesn't respect his OWN tribes history and values and is a disgrace to Native America. Under a HARRIS administration, 11,000 Native Americans who have been harmed by their own tribes, will NOT have her support.

Lawrence Baca on The Scourge of Tribal Disenrollment and BIA INACTION by CHOICE

An informative article, for those who haven't lived it by attorney Lawrence Baca, former President of the National Native Bar Association. 

The piece begins on page 135 here but the MONEY:   Solutions to the Problem Tribal Sovereign Immunity While the federal courts have thus far avoided becoming involved in intra-tribal membership disputes, that will not last forever. When courts become frustrated enough with the inability to address cases involving tribal disenrollment, they will take action

IF  we can't make the courts FRUSTRATED enough, it's OUR FAULT.  OUR silence to our OWN abuse, means NOBODY will speak for us.
 Tribal membership for Indian people is more than mere citizenship in an Indian tribe. It is the essence of one’s identity, belonging to community, connection to one’s heritage and an affirmation of their human being place in this life and world.

In short, it is not an overstatement to say that it is everything. In fact, it would be an understatement to say anything less.

Tribal membership completes the circle for the member’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of human life.21 The importance of tribal membership and tribal citizenship to Indian people cannot be easily captured in words.
The loss of citizenship is equally difficult to quantify. Solutions that will allow challenges to the tribe’s power to remove your citizenship, to disenroll you, are even more difficult to come to conceive. Being a member of an Indian tribe brings with it many benefits. Some are social and cultural, some are physical and fiscal, and some are spiritual and psychological. Having those taken from you can be devastating on many levels.

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s Recall Hearing and Election scheduled for today has been canceled.

Embattled Tribal Council Chairman Cedric Cromwell and Treasurer Gordon Harris were to be questioned about the way tribal finances have been handled.

The tribe’s election committee canceled the recall election as the Wampanoag Supreme Court declined to offer an advisory opinion requested by the tribal council.

The court did say in a filing that it found the recall petitions insufficient.

Washington State: Indians PROTEST NOOKSACK Tribe's Police Brutality

Armed police at NOOKSACK
Anti Free Speech, Brutality

Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 9:00 AM, Indians from throughout Western Washington will gather outside the Nooksack Tribal Court to protest the latest rise in Nooksack tribal police brutality and judicial abuse of process.

Families from the Nooksack Tribe and Lummi Nation and other Puget Sound tribal communities, will descend on Deming, Washington, in traditional song and civil protest.

The protest coincides with a 9:30 AM criminal court appearance by former Nooksack tribal member Elile Adams, who Nooksack Chief Judge Ray Dodge has persecuted since March 2017, when she sought a protection order against the father of her now 5 year-old daughter.

Carmen Tageant DEFEATS Nooksack Police Chief Mike Ashby in FEDERAL COURT

After YEARS of abuse from Nooksack Tribe, VICTORY against their oppressive police state.

Carmen Tageant has been recalled from public office, sexually harassed, cyber stalked, and physically assaulted by Nooksack political actors. Tageant’s home has been burglarized twice, and Nooksack police looked away. She has sought protection from tribal, federal, and state law enforcement, to no avail. But last Thursday, the former Nooksack Tribal Councilwoman who has been relentlessly persecuted since speaking out against the Nooksack 306 disenrollment in 2016, scored a legal victory in a Seattle federal court against Nooksack Police Chief Mike Ashby, who she alleges assaulted her at the Tribe’s Election Office on January 5, 2018.

U.S. District Court Judge James Robart denied Ashby’s motion seeking to require the United States to defend him from a personal injury lawsuit that Tageant filed against him in Whatcom County Superior Court soon after the incident.

“I am gratified by the Judge’s decision,” said Tageant. “I am grateful for anything that will help protect me or other Indian women or elders from violence or harassment by Nooksack cops.

In her state court suit, Tageant claims that as she attempted to file papers to declare her candidacy for re-election to the Nooksack Tribal Council, Election Superintendent Katrice Rodriguez announced to her, “you’re too late.” Then “Ashby forcefully grabbed both of [her] arms just above her elbows and violently pushed her back” out of the Election Office, which sits on fee lands beyond the Nooksack Indian Reservation. Tageant “was stunned by Defendant Ashby’s action, telling him, ‘what are you doing? Don’t touch me.’”

In March 2018, Ashby tendered Tageant’s state court lawsuit to the U.S. Department of Justice for defense pursuant to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), given a federal “638” funding agreement between the Nooksack Tribe and United States that assures Nooksack officers federal legal protection under the Federal Tort Claims Act for personal injuries they cause while working under that contract.

A year later, both the U.S. Departments of the Interior and Justice denied Ashby’s defense request. U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington Brian Moran determined that Ashby was not “acting within the scope of his employment” at the time of the incident because the “638 Contract was not intended to cover Chief Ashby’s off reservation enforcement activities.” 

Ashby then sued to compel the United States to defend him, and the matter ended up before Judge Robart.

Agreeing with the federal government, Judge Robart ruled that because the alleged assault occurred on lands beyond the Nooksack Reservation, the Tribe’s 638 contract did not afford Ashby a federal legal defense because he acted beyond the scope of his employment. Rejecting Ashby’s arguments that his job description and Nooksack law enforcement protocols somehow extended Federal Tort Claims Act protection to his off-reservation activities, Judge Robart explained:

“It's outside the reservation, it's outside Indian Country, and saying that it's in his job description or it's standard operating procedure somehow loops it back to be under [the contract] is simply not factually or legally supportable.”
Judge Robart dismissed the matter of Ashby’s Federal Tort Claims Act defense request with prejudice and remanded Tageant’s case back to Whatcom County Superior Court, where it will proceed towards trial.
In support of Tageant, another Nooksack woman, 

Deborah Alexander, stepped forward to explain to Judge Robart how on December 15, 2016, Ashby also put his hands on and assaulted her, without provocation.

Tribal Disenrollment: Airing A Tribe's DIRTY LAUNDRY in PUBLIC is a GOOD THING: SPOTLIGHTS are a GOOD Disinfectant

Image result for original pechanga images
Elder Lawrence Madariaga Died without JUSTICE

I'm reprising a post from 2007 where Pechanga remaining members (remainers?) were upset that we were speaking out in public about the horrid actions of the CPP haters. We culled the story from the old Paulina Hunters blog on My Space, which is seldom seen. In essence, the remainers are upset about being called out, but NOT upset about violations of civil rights, human rights, Pechanga Constitution, Child Molesters....... 

We've received a lot of comments from families of CPP members that we have spoken out against. They are not the least embarrassed about what their relatives have done to the tribe. 

UPDATE: Sorry, for those who don't know the CPP is part of a splinter group of tribal members that conspired to violate the civil rights of some of the membership.

Here's what A. Basquez wrote to Paulina Hunter's My Space :

Hey dont be mad because you cant prove your ancestors because I am a basquez and I am proud of it I have been enrolled since 1973 when were you enrolled when the casino went up thats what I thought. OP: Kind of sweet don't you think? that's only 25 years AFTER Lawrence Madariaga built his house. He would've needed a new roof by then. Please NO comments on spelling here. After all, he admitted his family, so it's understandable. 
another comment...this time from shawn (A Scearce relation)

From:Just me
Date: May 15, 2007 9:33 AM
Date Sent: 5/15/2007 9:33:00 AM:Please leave my family and my people alone, accept the truth and move on....Thank you...."

Shawn, Thanks for writing. We HAVE accepted the truth. The TRUTH is that we were screwed by the Concerned Pechanga People, which includes Butch Murphy, who has NO Pechanga blood. 
Now, the TRUTH, as proved by Pechanga's own hired expert, (The Hunters DID NOT HIRE HIM, Pechanga did) is that Paulina Hunter was Pechanga. 
The TRUTH is, that Pechanga Disenrollment committee has depositions taken in the Luiseno language from 1915 that prove that Paulina Hunter is Pechanga. 
The TRUTH is that Paulina Hunter has census reports from 1895 that says she's from Pechanga. That's 112 years ago. 
YOUR people, is OUR PEOPLE, Shawn. Educate yourself a little more. Ask yourself why a moratorium is legal? Because of the will of the people? Then why wouldn't that same will of the people, that voted overwhelmingly to halt all disenrollments not followed by the tribal council? 
You need to accept the truth Shawn, and know that if you don't help to right the Pechanga ship, it will go down. Would you fight for your rights to be Pechanga? Or would you just walk away and say...hey, it's no big deal? Pechanga has been overtaken by corrupt people, 

Last one:

Delila V. from Pechanga sent me the following email:

your profile is the most fucken stupidist shit ever a real member wouldnt say shit about the tribe TALK SHIT about other families or about anyone from the REZ. use a person that is no longer here wont say who's profile this is so FUCK YOU AND STOP SENDING ME SHIT. DAMMIT! i dont give a fuck if you got dissenrolled if you were truly from Pechanga Reservation then you wouldn't have got dissenrolled..and can prove that ur from there!

Delila, the problem is that WE DID prove that we were from Pechanga, and in fact, the Pechanga Enrollment Committee PROVED we were from Pechanga, by hiring their own expert, who SAID we were from Pechanga
They chose to believe a child molester instead, and one who stood up in the General Meetings and complained the we weren't voting the way they wanted, and a guy who's two sister's are on the enrollment committee. Gloria Wright, who came to the reservation 100 years after Paulina was there, and of course, one who doesn't even want her brother in the tribe. 
I understand that you don't care if we got disenrolled, you benefit by more people getting kicked out

DIRTY LAUNDRY must be aired, otherwise people can say, "WE DIDN'T KNOW".
How to do it?  SHARE the information...OVER and OVER, on social media, via email.  Let people know WHERE to look for the information.  I think this blog has done a decent job in 9 years,  help it get more notice....

Democrats Who Play the Victim Card on Civil Rights Are USELESS in Indian Country

 Many news media and Hollywood types are out with comments like "If you support Trump, you support RACISM!  It has me asking, if you don't STAND AGAINST the moral stains created by disenrolling tribes, does that mean YOU SUPPORT ABUSES of Civil and Human RIGHTS?!

Robinson Rancheria Protest
Led to restoration of all rights for Disenrolled

For over a DECADE, we've written to our State's Senators (Barbara Boxer , Feinstein and most recently Harris ), local Representatives and at least THREE U.S. Attorney Generals (Holder,  Lynch, and most recently Jeff Sessions)   Crickets chirping is the usual response.  And the entertainers, yes we wrote to many, asking them not to perform at an APARTHEID reservation, including George Lopez and Gabriel Iglesias, who we sent more than 50 faxes.  Not a response.  Does this mean they approve of civil rights abuses?

Here's what we've seen on the Charlottesville/Trump response and the lumping everyone together.

Many in Indian Country SWALLOW Elizabeth Warren's "Act of Contrition at Frank LaMere Forum

Proving that it's more important to coddle a DEMOCRAT, than it is to be honest about her actions, prominent Natives, including Deb Haaland, a Laguna Pueblo citizen, dismissing the actions of Natives who still harbor resentment to Elizabeth Warren appropriation of Cherokee Heritage.

Rep. Haaland, who endorsed Ms. Warren last month, takes a different view than those critics. Introducing Ms. Warren at the forum, she noted that some in the news media had asked her  whether Mr. Trump’s criticism of Ms. Warren over her ancestry would “hamper her ability to convey a clear campaign message.”    OP:  SO??
