The California Tribal Business Alliance, a group that has exerted significant political power in recent years, is down to just two members.
The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians left the group, Dave Palermo reported for Pechanga.net. T
That leaves the Pala Band of Luiseno Indians and the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians as members. With Pala proving themselves untrustworthy in dealings with their own membership, can they be taken seriously?
The CTBA formed in 2004 and consisted of a handful of tribes that were mostly represented by the same attorney. The group has often differed on policy and legal issues from most other tribes in the state.
The group slowly lost members over the years.
