First the attorneys came out against tribal disenrollment, then National Congress of American Indians went silent, and voted in the chairman of the disenrolling Redding Rancheria. NOW, The Association of American Indians Physicians have reached THIS CONCLUSION:
Historically, our Native nations were inclusive communities with clear cultural and spiritual identities. We incorporated other individuals and families into our community in order to gain in numbers and function. This openness is evidence of our cultural confidence and generosity that is the hallmark of all Native people. That history is now challenged by decisions to remove longstanding members with kinship bonds tied deeply into other tribal families. This inconsistency cannot be overlooked.
