Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians Chairman Mark Macarro, who has betrayed so many of his tribal constituency, spoke highly of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi after she met with the 21 of our nation's Native people. Many of them honorable, others, like Macarro, who dishonor the memory of true Pechanga people.
“To the recollection of many participants, no sitting speaker of the House has ever convened an issues meeting with tribal leadership,'' Macarro said. “Clearly, Speaker Pelosi understands the trust responsibility of the United States with tribes and regards it with the utmost seriousness.”
Macarro FAILED to uphold this basic tenet of Pechanga law:
"IT SHALL BE THE DUTY OF ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS OF THE BAND TO UPHOLD AND ENFORCE THE CONSTITUTION, BYLAWS, AND ORDINANCES OF THE TEMECULA BAND OF LUISENO MISSION INDIANS; AND ALSO, TO UPHOLD THE INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS OF EACH MEMBER WITHOUT MALICE OR PREJUDICE."
