With our recent good fortune at killing Osama Bin Laden, we get proof at 99% that Osama Bin Laden's match to relatives is 99%. That serves as proof enough to: The President of the United States, The Speaker of the House and the Attorney General.
To the corrupt leaders, including Tracey Edwards, of the Redding Rancheria, which forced the Foreman family to dig up two relatives to match DNA samples, 99% was not enough:
From Carla Foreman Maslin:
My tribe conjured up a rumor re: my family's genetics (lineal descendancy). We followed their rules that they changed every day because we gave them all the documentation they requested.
Went thru the hearing... process & jumped thru all unnecessary hoops only to be told in the end that they wanted miticondrial DNA. The proof we provided verified it.
Then they wanted genomic DNA, which meant to unearth our ancestors. It was done. And after the scientific evidence which proved we are lineal descendants above 99%, they still went against there own laws & kicked all members of my family out of our tribe. Go figure!
It was such a shock thru the country & beyond that many articles were written about it. It still has profound affects on my family that some have literally killed themselves or gotten sick over it.
SHAME on the Redding Rancheria Council for diminishing this founding family
