California Senator's Boxer AND Feinstein Sponsor Bill to FURTHER Strip Individual Indians of their Rights

Senators Boxer and Feinstein support a water rights settlement for the Pechanga Band that would give the tribe the authority to negotiate the terms of the settlement on behalf of allotees, some of whom the tribe has denied membership to or disenrolled. The tribe would also be allowed to determine how allotees received their share of the settlement.

Taking into consideration the tribe's actions to deny or strip numerous allotees of their fair share of proceeds from tribal economic development, why are law makers allowing the tribe to negotiate and determine the share of the settlement on behalf of people that tribal officials have previously damaged?

Senators, PLEASE withdraw your sponsorship of this bill.

I have wrote Boxer and Feinstein and there response was how they could not involved in Indian matters. know they are involved because Pehanga illegally disenrolled allottees to gain controll of casino asets and water rights. is this not a criminal act because as Federally recognized allotees that have been disenrolled and have no say in what Pechanga does. Our right under federal law have been illegally swept away for Financial gain. know this makes Fienstein and boxer Accomplice in a federal crime.
