Asst. Secretary of Indian Affairs Larry Echohawk Has Recieved Request to Meet

We have received word from Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Larry Echohawk's office that they have received our request form they require to facilitate a meeting.  The confirmation comes outside the two week window they require so that should not be an issue.

We hold out hope that Secretary Echohawk will speak to a group of Native Americans that will be protesting at the reservation of a tribe that practices apartheid, and one that has violated the civil rights of a significant portion of its citizens.  Please invite our speakers into Pechanga's meeting area or come out to the street, where the protesters will be..

THANK YOU in advance for your consideration, Mr. Secretary.

It is my hope that there is sincerity in Mr. Ehcchawk’s heart, and truth in his soul, and a real memory of the history of his people will guide him to speak to those who have no voice, no rights, no past. Let Mr. Echohawk hear our song about the darkness that has broken the circle of many families. It is not the past that we need fear anymore. It is the future that we seek and leadership to follow that has the mind and spirit of the of the grandfather Eagle. As a Lakota Oglala friend of mine has recently reminded me that the ways of the wasichu have found their ways in to the lives of even his people. I hope that Mr. Echohawk will accept the invitation offered. This invitation is meant for all Indians regardless of statues. The thing about a movement is not whether it is old, new, or reinvented. What is important is that all who are involved be made to feel welcomed as equals’; this is why I call you brothers and sisters for I do not oppose my family in times of trouble. Smoky Bear if it is your place to lead then remember that you must learn to follow. Sound corny wel,l those word were from my grandfather, who learned them from his elder. Talk to the elders of the family, they have the wisdom that will give strength to your spirit. May my words be joined with the smoke of the pipe.

White Buffalo, thank you for bringing to bear what our ancestors have to teach us. It is said that our elders will show us the path to follow if we just listen. You speak "of smoke of the pipe." This was where the spirit and wisdom came together. The "Native Americans" of all tribes need to embrace their elders for they have been overlooked, forgotten, disenrolled, and banished from their respective memberships with the coming of the casinos', allowing the corrupt and greedy Indian to take on the "White Mans" way. We need to get back to the true Indian way of honoring our elders, for we have much to learn from them.

White Buffalo said...

That was the message I was asking all to hear, It has been lost, so through our example the younger generations will see that it is not about the money or the casino, rather it is about the ways of the people and how we can honor our ancestors’ by living right. Respect of our elders, participation in our community, and working to keep our lives in harmony with our world. This does not mean that we have to live in poverty or for want, but as a people we are taught to share with those who are in need, and only take what we need. These old principles have been lost. It is my hope that our message to Mr. Echohawk is that we understand the importance of history and self determination to stand up against those who would deny us our birthright and place in the community to witch we belong. It is my further hope that Mr. Echohawk will see and understand that this is not a matter of politics for as it stands we have no voice, and that he remembers his and our ancestors’ faced far greater challenges than the one we ask for help with. More can be gained with compassion and understanding than turning a blind eye. We ask as a united people who only wish is to be accepted for who they are and where they come from, so they we may take our rightful place in the community that we have been denied.

WITH EACH PASSING MOMENT OUR TIME WITH OUR OUR ELDERS IS BEING LOST TO THIS ILLEGAL AND UNJUST MOVEMENT TO ELIMINATE US FROM HISTORY. ONLY OUR ELDERS CAN TELL US THE STORY AS IT UNFOLDED IN THE DAYS OF OLD, AND THIS CAN'T BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN ANY LONGER. FOR TIME WILL EVENTUALLY TAKE US ALL. FOR OUR CHILDREN "NEED" TO KNOW. WE NEED TO REGAIN OUR SELF RESPECT, INTERITY AND RIGHTFULL PLACE FROM THOSE THAT HAVE STOLEN OUR BIRTHRIGHT. WE ARE NOW GOING TO RECLAIM THAT WHICH IS OURS.

Well don't count on crap from echohawk,carollyn has been banished by her tribe and won in court ,upheld by a federal judge and echohawk did not do crap!

Ditto! Politic subterfuge;plain and simple.

In house 'Indian Law' attorneys; aka non-Pechanga Indians representing who? Non-Pechanga stockholders...Pechanga Development is a Corporation whose only goal is to enhance PROFITS for STOCKHOLDERS.

It's concern is not PECHANGA INDIANS; STAKEHOLDERS.

Pechanga Development Corp does not have a conscience. It is using Corporate Culture to wipe out Pechanga Indians.

Well, it is apparent, Pechanga Development's engine is run by parasites who are Not Pechanga Indians.

Who are the traitors who chose personal enrichment rather than PECHANGA INDIANS;STAKEHOLDERS?

NOBODY represents PECHANGA INDIANS.

Criminal acts committed against Indians in California were germinated;sown by agents of CIGNA.

Villains? ALL jackals who attended CIGNA indoctrination sessions since inception.

ERNIE STEVENS Jr and Jacob Coin so proud to 'whip' Assholes into line of betraying Indians.

Jacob Coin; is now a fraud member of San Manuel? Thought he was Hopi.

Jacob Coin....you still using mantra; Seige! Seige! ASSHOLE!

I, descendant of Jews, say; Jew juggernaut is the monster; hidden hands of this incursion.

Jews are very powerful in American
politics. They direct monstrous crimes against Indigenous peoples around the world; economic and political power.

How did Pechanga become so broken?

Lanny Davis+Jerome Levine+Mark Macarro+Daniel Inouye( now so feeble he is pissing his pants..he needs a handler to check his freaking pants after he pisses.)+ Benie Campbell + Media....others to be named

There are many in Media who are working very hard to quash voices.

James May; still working for CIGNA?

Jacob Coin? What a disgrace to hopi.

Majel? Oy vey! Stupid Head....what you doing?

PRESS ENTERPRISE..Are people aware;PRESS ENTERPRISE has a long relationship since inception of
Temecula Valley Pioneers' history?

CHET BARFIELD...WHERE YOU NOW?

Michelle DeArmond?

Speaking of Stupid Heads...

Mr. Echohawk you can have an impact on protecting Indians from corrupt tribal councils. Stand up for those that need help.

I bet you Larry Echo Hawk will not mention anything pertaining to the illegal disenrollment.

He will be fiddling to an anticipated appreciative audience of wolves.

Of course, he could surprise the wolves and say something that incites them to effing eat him right on the spot! KEN PEREZ, fire up the pit!!!!

THE FOX SPEAKS TO THE MEMBERSHIP IN THE HEN HOUSE ABOUT HOW GOOD THEY HAVE IT, AND ALL THE WHILE PLANNING THEIR NEXT MEAL. "SAD ISN'T IT? "RIGHTS BE "DAMNED, GIVE ME MONEY." THAT'S THE CASINO WAY. ALL OF YOU "NATIVE AMERICANS" HAVE RIGHTS IN YOUR CONSTITUTIONS AND BY LAWS AND BY THE GRACE OF GOD, TAKE THEM BACK. LET THIS PROTEST/RALLY BE THE LAST "NAIL" IN THE "COFFIN" OF GREED AND CORRUPTION FOR ALL "NATIVE AMERICANS" IN INDIAN COUNTRY. WITH THIS BEING SAID, WE NEED ALL OF YOU TO COME TOGETHER WITH US AND MAKE IT HAPPEN. WILL YOU PLEASE TAKE AT LEAST THIS ONE DAY, JUNE 2 AND JOIN US? THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS.

Film oral histories of elders.

Ancestors did not have the many tools people have today.

Capture the essence of what has transpired in the past;as well as what is transpiring today.

People, today, can provide eye witness accounts of what is happening now.

So how is Tribal History going to reflect on Mark and his council, because reflect it will. They will be remembered forever for what has been done. He has the chance now to take it upon himself to correct those misdeeds that have been perpetrated upon the Tribe and bring harmony and order back into the Tribe.

Or he can continue down the path he has taken and be forever remembered as an evil despot.

Now is the day to choose.......

I will put my money down that Mr. Larry Echo hawk will not have the stomach or the manhood to tell them what they need to do. For example, will he mention to them that if they wanted to be heard with in Congress regarding Sovereignty then stop lying to congress and stop abusing Indian Civil Rights by their illegal disenrollment and start taking care of their Tribes and the people with in them.
