How Low Can Mark Macarro Let The Pechanga Tribe Sink? The STINK of Corruption is Shaming Indian Country

The answer is:  As low as the Pechanga Tribe will allow.  For decades, Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians chairman Mark Macarro has ruled Pechanga. This blog  was created to draw attention the the civil and human rights abuses that Macarro and his cronies perpetrated on the tribal citizens of Pechanga.

Since he and his brother John Macarro, the unaccomplished "attorney", have overseen the extermination of two large families, and their voting blocs, Pechanga continues to sink into a morass of corruption. Macarro even accept the word of a child molesterin the Hunter disenrollment.

We've written about the corruption of Pechanga's tribal council before.  We've written about how the former chairwoman of the tribe, Jennie Miranda and her son Larry Miranda were able to get away with theft for so long.  She was disenfranchised and 'banished" for 30 years..but she's baaack on the reservation.

We also wrote how Macarro worked hard to keep Californians from voting on expanding gaming. And Mark Macarro was subject of a recall attempt for installing his wife's lobbying company in tribal affairs, spending a quarter million a year.

Holly and Mark Macarro


This latest episode, of the Pechanga Tribe using sovereignty like a club, to beat a helpless employee  Benedict Cosentino, has exposed more criminal activity.  As stated here:  Specifically, Cosentino presented evidence that he served as confidential informant and provided information that led to several criminal convictions for illegal activities at the Pechanga Casino.

Here is what Cosentino reported: Shortly after he started work at the Pechanga Casino, Cosentino began to witness rampant criminal activity at the Pechanga Casino including an illegal online casino being operated from the floor of the Pechanga Casino; loan sharking; extortion and bribery; rampant employee theft; and collusion between corrupt dealers, supervisors and players.

This begs the question, WHY wasn't Macarro working to ferret out the corruption?  Why was a WHISTLEBLOWER attacked?   WHO were they protecting?

This is all true. Also it should be mentioned the tribe has stolen, bought, and lied for a gravel pit, and now I just read the tribe is attempting to steal a mountain. It is claimed to be a sacred site. Now I sill not dispute the significance of acquiring land, yet the tribe has a bad record when it comes to the intended use of the acquired land. Case in point the Oak Tree and the surrounding property were put into trust and the tribe let Marc and John lie about the use of the land. They told co0ngress that the land would not be developed and lo-and-behold the golf course snow sits on a portion of that land that was not supposed to be developed. I do not have anything against the golf course, but there was no need to lie about it Marcy. I hope congress is reminded of this fact when the tribe ask to have the mountain put into trust.

The Press Enterprise reports;

"Fulfilling a promise made back in 2012, the Pechanga Band of Luise├▒o Indians is working to add Pu’├ęska Mountain and surrounding acreage into its reservation."

"The tribe considers that land sacred -- a vital link to its creation story -- and it plans to keep the 353.80 acres as undeveloped open space and preserve it for future generations, according to the tribe."

Mark and followers don't want to honor all the tribes ancestors, why?

Mark and followers know the truth, but dishonor elders who know the band and recorded its history during the reservations creation, why?

Mark and followers have allowed him and others to hold office during the entire broadcast of lies and misinformation about the reservations creation, why?

Mark and others have held office even after thieves have stolen even more than other members rights and identity, why?

Pechanga needs to focus on the truth. The book was signed by elders during the reservations creation. The documents are part of history, our ancestors and their kin suffered, why are you allowing their heirs to suffer under the thieves and liars? How many members today have been caught stealing from within the band? Jennie, John, etc....

Why are we allowing the liars and apartheid band members to take our history and creation through hearings that broadcast the truth?

The truth will always win. It's always the outcome. Look carefully at all actions and records. How was the Rez created? The books have already been federally recorded. Other bands would never allow this to happen.

Excellent questions, the band needs to take over.

Everyone, every member, even the disenrollment members need to take over. Hopefully before the band has to answer to others. Everyone has rights!

The band is weak, they only care about per cap. Or else they never would have let their leader Macarro run them over and steal millions from the tribe.

I was just wondering.... Years ago when I was still in the Tribe as a member, after Tribal meetings Mark used to hang around and visit with everyone. Then I noticed that towards the end of my enrollment he used to sneak out early from the meetings, so he wouldn't be confronted by anyone (like he was afraid). Does he still sneak out after meetings, or does he hang around and visit like we used to?

Graduation is happening, others will join in the sharing of the lovely casino Funds. Your per cap may drop $1,000 a month, what's your next plan to get more $$$$$?? Some members will hold off on expanding their immediate family because of the drop of funds, others are searching where to get more, some are shaking their heads this crap is really happening. Open the doors and share more $$$ will all Indians. The creator will allow more funds to spread legally? How do you think ICRA and gaming funds were generated? The plan was to share with everyone? I'm sure the creator would like that plan better, than shrinking the bands, stealing others shares, and stealing from within the casino wells? I'm sure our Ancestors would disenroll others to have more? I's sure the creator loves the illegal actions of apartheid, funds not being shared. Thank you Mark, Jennie, John.... what are you sharing with everyone?!

Again and again we broadcast the TRUTH! Mark could at anytime along with the others who allow corrupt actions to take place to support the truth. Set yourself free, Honor ALL Ancestors of the Pechanga Band. No one is more Pechanga than you or us or WE ALL. We are ALL here and our Ancestors would love for us to move on together. That's the TRUTH!

Mark said "We have a right to determine membership." Correct, the truth is WE ALREADY DETERMINED MEMBERSHIP, and our Ancestors were honored and respected. Now to have a faction led by Macarro et al thinking it's legal and ok to dishonor our Ancestors, determine membership on enrolled members who meet the requirements, take away all their rights and spend their share of everything the band has been allowed to participate in. Pechanga deserves to be honored with truth. Hunter family is Pechanga, no other family is more Pechanga than Paulina and her descendants. Your Ancestors knew the truth and filed oral depositions on Allotted Indians. The reservation and Casino would not be here today if the Ancestors did not record the truth. Honor them NOW!
