In Memorium: Robert Edward Foreman Redding Rancheria's First Chairman Died Before Seeing Justice Served

I've been on a light posting schedule due to remeodeling issues at our home. Last week, was the anniversary of the death of Redding Rancheria's first chairman, Bob Foreman. Here is a video tribute put together by his family. As we remember the acts of genocide in our country's history, LET'S NOT FORGET than today's tribes are practicing genocide on their own people.

Gut-wrenching! Men's inhumanity...shameful!

Indian gaming has created a subculture among our tribes’ mirrors the greater society of America. Where lust of power and greed for money, has become the new spirit in the minds of many of our brothers and sisters. It is my belief that in the past when tribes and families depended upon one another, and believed in doing the right thing for the greater good of the community would first use council and medicine on those who showed signs of an evil spirit within. It is not honorable to seek the wealth of this world, so tribes who do are now cut off from the spirit that brings peace and harmony to the people. I feel pity, disappointment, and shame, for the new Indian way leads to destruction.

As of December 1, 2011 the last Foreman working for the tribe was terminated - she was Bob Foreman's eldest daughter who had worked for the tribe for 35 + years. Justice must prevail.

This is not true, for I am Native American. What I hate is what is happening to a once proud people. I have family that is still has membership in Pechanga. The power and greed led them down a road that split the family apart when they decided that we did not belong because we would not dance on their strings. I do not hate them, what I hate is what they let happen to themselves. There is a difference. I have witnessed many tribes break their circle of in pursuit of money and political power, yet there are a few tribes who have resisted and it is they who treat their people and community with respect. Instead of judging my statements, ask the questions that will help you understand what I have said, for your interpretation is wrong.

My original post was meant to remind us that we once held the welfare of the community above personal gain, and that family came first. The object was to preserve the community by any means, and that banishing someone was a very last resort that was not taken lightly. It was never the practice to banish/disenroll entire families for profit and political power, This new Indian way was practiced on my family like I said, so see my original post as a reflection of what has happened to our community and our sisters and brothers at the hands of some lost souls.

What's sad is to see how many have given up from pechanga. We at pala will never give up. As one voice we will not go quietly into the night. We will stand together to restore what is rightfully ours. Our birth right. I pray for all of us in Indian country. Because our ancestors weep for the people that greedy white Indians have become. Very very sad.

I know not every one has given up. I'm pala. And I am In the same fight as u guys are. I'm proud of the ones with the balls to stand. The ones who are takin bribes to give information have sold thier souls and will be judged by those who have left before us. And I'm certain they will not be kind. Keep up the fight. Stand steady in our cause. What's right will eventually prevail.

Question, back to the Foreman family disenrollment. How does the Redding tribe rationalize what they did by kicking them out?

The DNA test came back in the 99.9%range that they are indeed blood of the tribe and I know if I had that kind of evidence that say, for example, I was the father of a child, I would be legally bound to pay child support for said child but their tribe still denies Foreman and his family are their blood?

For some tribes it is the New Indian way. That is why they have been renamed Casino Indians like those corrupt tribal councils like Pechanga
