The Foreman Family: Maintaining a Fighting Stance Against Tribal Corruption
Readers, It's not only the big home runs that can make a difference in the struggle for our rights. In working to gain our rights back, small hits need to be made to emphasize the wrongs perpetrated on Indian people by there own tribes. The family of Robert Foreman, Native American Hero, are fighting the old fashioned way: With in-your-face advertising. They are using Robert Foreman's home,which faces the Redding Rancheria Casino to display their message. (click to enlarge) This man was the FIRST Tribal Chairman of the tribe, he brought HEALTH CARE to Native Americans in the region, and for THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS MORE in their per capita checks, the tribe disenrolled Mr. Foreman and his family. The first per capita check was $3,000 and after the Foreman family was disenrolled it doubled to $6,000. After all the negative press, shining light on the despicable actions of the Redding Rancheria council, per capita has dropped to $2,500 per month. NOW, imagine if the Foreman family was fighting FOR the tribe! I'd want them in my corner.
