We will continue to fight for our rights as Pechanga people and continue to work for the rights of all disenfranchised Native Americans. America's independence was not won overnight and this struggle of ours, can't be won overnight either.
We must continue to educate our politicians and our local citizenry at every opportunity. We've had some successes and success breeds success. We need more friends and family to get involved and help keep the volume of the injustices perpetrated on Indian people...BY Indan people, mainly the corrupt tribal councils that proceed in stripping civil and human rights from Indian people across our country.
Please HELP us. How? By passing this blog along to your friends, by visiting here often and by sharing the link http://originalpechanga.com/ on your Facebook and MySpace pages. You can help us be more visible and increased visibility is one way for us to combat the excessive amounts of money that gaming tribes have. We have already forced Pechanga to spend more money than they ever dreamed and we've shown their lies to Congress, causing them to lose an important water rights issue. We are currently working on sanctions that the BIA Director Amy Deutschke told our teams were possible. We expect that to have an effect.
Happy 4th of July!
