National Congress of American Indians President Brian Cladoosby has an article of the recent establishment of a charitible foundation by Washington Redskin's owner Snyder. As if a mascot is MORE important than the abuse HIS MEMBER TRIBES are foisting on their own people. Disenrollment, banishment, moratoriums, voting rights abuse, theft of per capita... YOU CAN'T be SERIOUS, Brian.

My comment on NCAI President Brian Cladoosby's op/ed in the Washington POST:
Mr. Cladoosby's opinion on the Redskins and Snyder's Foundation shows the complete lack of seriousness of this matter compared to what is happening in INDIAN COUNTRY. While I do think the Redskin nickname has racist connotations, as a Native American, I think the NCAI and Mr. Cladoosby should be looking INWARD first.
Indian Country is INFECTED with civil & human rights violations, tribal disenrollment, theft of per capita and APARTHEID. Compare that to a NAME, Mr. Cladoosby, and then you look foolish.
Ask Pechanga Band Chairman Mark Macarro why he keeps his own family out of the tribe and why his council did not follow TRIBAL LAW in ending ALL disenrollments from the tribe.
Ask Pala Band Chair Robert Smith why he believes abusing 15% of his tribe is proper.
Ask the 3 STOOGES of the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians WHY they eliminated 70% of their tribe. THEN LOOK IN THE MIRROR and ask yourself why you aren't looking at THEM first. http://originalpechanga.com has MORE.
