Many members of the Hunter family came to our elder Lawrence Madariaga's home to spend time with he was was once honored by the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians.
Now in his 90's Lawrence welcomed young and old as we sat beneath the trees and share stories of the good times on the reservation, when dove hunting and rabbit hunting brought food to our tables.
It's been over four years now, that the Hunter clan was unconstitutionally terminated from the tribe, led by the disgraceful Mark Macarro. The fight to reclaim what is rightfully ours continues, but the day was meant to honor our ancestors by being together.
Thank you, for bringing is together.
