BIA's Larry Echohawk, After Destroying Lives at San Pascual, RESIGNS.

Screw the Alito Family, then resign. Good to see you GO, Mr. Echo Hawk. You have left a legacy of destruction of Indians, congratulations.

The top official for the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs is resigning to accept a full-time leadership position with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, ending three years with the department that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says "opened a new chapter" in U.S. relationships with American Indian tribes.

Larry Echo Hawk, the assistant secretary of the Interior for Indian Affairs, is being appointed to the Quorum of the Seventy, which is the Mormon Church's third-highest governing body. The announcement from the church came Saturday during its semi-annual general conference in Salt Lake City.

President Barack Obama appointed Echo Hawk, 63, to oversee the BIA in 2009.

"With Larry Echo Hawk's leadership, we have opened a new chapter in our nation to nation relationships with American Indian and Alaska Native tribal governments, accelerated the restoration of tribal homelands, improved safety in tribal communities, resolved century-old water disputes, invested in education, and reached many more milestones that are helping Indian nations pursue the future of their choosing," Salazar said in a statement.

During Echo Hawk's tenure, the Interior Department settled a $3.4 billion class-action lawsuit with Native American landowners over mismanaged royalties. The settlement reached in late 2009 is under appeal.

Salazar said he would work with Echo Hawk to ensure a smooth transition within the BIA. It was not clear who would be appointed to oversee the BIA after Echo Hawk's departure.

Echo Hawk, a member of the Pawnee Nation, was elected Idaho attorney general in 1990, the first Native American to be elected to the position in any state. He ran unsuccessfully in 1994 for Idaho governor as a Democrat.

A top official for the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs is resigning to accept a leadership position with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Assistant Secretary Larry Echo Hawk is being appointed to the Quorum of the Seventy, which is the Mormon Church's third-highest governing body. It is a full-time position.

The 63-year-old Echo Hawk is a member of the Pawnee Nation. He has worked for Indian Affairs since 2009.

Echo Hawk was elected as the attorney general for Idaho in 1990, the first Native American in the country to be elected as a state attorney general. He ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat in 1994 for governor of Idaho.

The appointment was announced Saturday during the Mormon Church's semi-annual general conference in Salt Lake City.

The "Pressure" of always "Backing The Casino Indians" and their "Illegal Acts" has finally taken its "Toll" on "Old Chickenhawk!. He's getting out before the "Hammer Falls," and all the Illegal Acts" come to light.....Here's my take on this: " He's getting out, while the getting is good." That is...."Before it comes back too "Bites Him In The A..." Then there is the "Distinct Possibility" that "Chickenhawk" will accept a "Consulting Position" with the B.I.A and paid handsomely for his "Views," and no "Resonsibily," this time, for his "Corrupt Actions....."Eagle Eyes."

First Fletcher is force to resigned when he is caught using his position to help disenrolled. Now it looks like EchoHawk is forced to resign for the same reasons.

In response to that lame post of: April 1, 2012 9:07 AM.

So what, if any, does that even "Mean?" You seem to have the "Mentallity of "A BOX OF ROCKS!"...."Eagle Eyes."

Things are finally changing in Indian country. there has been enough tribal corruption for too long. Things are finally going back to the old ways before casino's, greed, disenrollments. These last ten years have tribal leaders have taken the ways of the white man. Taking land, disrespecting elders, shaming future generations. Leaving a legacy of terror, instead of building a self reliant future that was promised from the dawn of Indian Gaming. Mr. Echohawk has fed his greed and now it's time for true Natives to live in peace, the way they meant to. Sharing with everyone in the community not trying to become rich at the expense of the tribe.

I think it means that ChickenHawk is being sued and he can't take the heat, so he is leaving the kitchen. Obviously ChickenHawk has an underlying issue and is forced to resign.

Mormons are becoming very powerful right now with Romney possibly becoming the next president. Echohawk is just looking out for himself and jumping on the bandwagon of who's next in power. Echohawk never cared about Natives. Only looking out for his own wallet.

And you know this...."How?"

The "Chuckchansi Indian Nation" in "Utter "Chaos!"....Pala, Redding, and the others..."Still
under Siege," so where is this change for the good you speak of?..."Eagle Eyes."

nickey said...

The change for NDNs living under traditional ways is not here. I believe smokeybear is right Echohawk is getting out while the getting"s good. He was just one of the people committing this cultural genocide that is still taking place.

Anonymous said...

He didn't commit cultural genocide, but he sure didn't stop it.

Although, in San Pascual case, he was an accomplice.

Shame on your Larry Echo Hawk.

Bring pala people to...

Is the san pasqual case over ? and what happened ?

smokeybear said...

You know, "THAT'S A VERY GOOD IDEA!" Another "Protest" is in order. Lets start the "Ball" rolling. All "Tribes" are "Invited." This is a "Must!" "Indian Country is under "Siege," and we are done allowing these "Corrupt and Criminal Tribal Leaders" to "Destroy are "Heritage and Birthright" because of their "In-sah-able Quest" for the "Mighty $$$," at the expense of "True Lineal Decendants. These "Casino Indians" and the "Government(Indian Affairs)" needs to be put on "Notice" that these "Criminal Acts" will no longer be "Tolerated!" We "Can Do This!" This needs to be a "Protest Of Epic Preportions," and "Not Let Up." This can't over stressed. So if all "Tribes" are on board, the "Media" has to take "Notice."..."Eagle Eyes."

The whole system is rigged for failure; injustice.

There are dead humans walking and talking...

Soulless; puffed up with foolish pride at their clever deceptions.

They gather to plot and scheme.... their manipulations to steal.

Wasicu have been dropping like flies.....

Ah! Lies, thefts, gatherings of the Grims....

One Grim thinks himself clever and 'lucky' to enrich himself at the expense of children.

How foolish is this Grim ...already dead!

Secret! Dead man Grim is bursting with pride! He has made another deal with another devil!

Yep! Another whale has swallowed psychopath...

Hmmm...premeditated; secret setup all ready for .....Surprise!

When all is said and done...

Thieving psychopath has already lost his soul....but!

When he expels his last breath; smelling of his stench...

He went to hell with $ in the bank!

smokeybear said...

And left his "Legacy of Deceit" for those that follow in the "Confines of Evil" to which they "Subscribe!" Without an "End," there can not be a "Beginning," and we "Implode" from within, with no "Justification Thereof."

And..."Hell" will "Embrace"..."THE CASINO INDIAN!"...Eagle Eyes."
