Sacramento Event Draws Tribes from Throughout California UPDATE

The rally at Sacramento's Capitol Building today drew members from throughout California. Over 100 onlookers listened to impassioned speeches from speakers who have suffered the pain of disenrollment, had their civil rights violated and who suffer from corrupt tribal councils.

As I'm travelling tomorrow, pictures of the event won't be up until tomorrow. But until then, I ask you to look through the blog and get up to speed on the issues, and comment.

We will be asking for help with letter writing and building traffic on a few sites here in Indian Country.

John Gomez Jr and Carla Maslin of AIRRO represented many who have been unjustly disenrolled. Quanah Parker Brightman railed against the corrupt nature of entirely too many tribal councils, defining them as "APPLES" red on the outside and white on the inside. Laura Wass of AIM was also spreading the word to onlookers.

CONGRATULATIONS to Quanah on the birth of his daughter, last night, weighing in at 8 lbs 11 oz. and 22" long! At the same time, our best wishes for his father, Lehman, who is in the hospital, as we speak. Still, Quanah was able to advocate our positions to the press. I would be remiss not to mention that Quanah's wife was heavily involved in their daughter's birth! LOL

Please, stay tuned to the blog, for more of the story.
