This details the disenrollment of Pechanga members in 2006. My family, which was the second family to be terminated from the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians. Please listen to THEIR expert speak. WE DID NOT HIRE Dr. Johnson, the foremost expert on California Indians PECHANGA DID. Why did they not believe their OWN expert? Because he didn't come to the conclusion they wanted.
SADLY, Lawrence Madariaga, Hunter Family Elder, has passed away. This happened because Frances Miranda, Ihrene Scearce and Ruth Masiel disregarded their experts report, and believe a CHILD MOLESTER instead.
