Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians to Strip More of their Tribal Citizenship?

Received this from a terminated member. There will be a bigger story out on Thursday by Carmen George of Sierra Star News.

The Tribal Council of Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians--which disenrolled 50 tribal members six weeks ago, has disenrolled almost 800 tribal members total since 1999, and is alleged to have plans to disenroll another 200-400 tribal members in the next 90 days, has called a special meeting for 9:00 a.m. TOMORROW, November 16, 2011.   (OP:  Are mid week meetings the norm?)

The meeting is for the general council members and will be held at the Butler Building at Picayune. The agenda is unknown, but it is certain that any tribal member not living near Picayune will likely not be aware of this meeting, and for what reason? I urge all Indian People with relations or other connections to Picayune to call or e-mail these people IMMEDIATELY!!! I also urge all those remaining enrolled at Picayune to attend this meeting, as very important aspects of the future of Picayune will undoubtedly be discussed and decisions made!!!


for ALL nations...for ALL chukchansi people said...

Picayune is the worst offender of civil and human rights in Indian Country.

Chukchansi tribal leaders should be ashamed.
How said that all these greedy and corrupt Casino owning Tribes can not get enough $$$, they choose instead to to turn their backs on their own relatives.

The people who lead lead the charge on these paper genocides should be the people who are disenrolled and no, not their entire families, just the perpetrators.

People who tear tribes are apart should be the ones who are torn from their tribes for their actions.
