Does the fact that the BIA stands by while Native Americans have their citizenship terminated absolve them of their responsibility to natives? ......... OR is the NEW MOTTO of the BIA:
The ONLY GOOD INDIAN, is a DISENROLLED INDIAN?
In the case of the San Pasqual Tribe in San Diego County, a casino tribe, which operates Valley View Casino, it's curious that the BIA is helping the tribal council, most of whom descend from a white man who took over a reservation, keep true blood members OUT of the tribe.
Before you say, hey, the BIA can't get involved, know that the San Pasqual CONSTITUTION, allows them to be involved in membership. That's why the TRIBE went to the BIA to help them get rid of the ALTO family. In that case, a FAKE Indian tribal council got rid of another family...because they weren't INDIAN? Rich isn't it?
And it's NOT like this is an isolated case, but it will be the most egregious. The BIA, as evidence will show, screwed this tribe up SO badly, they don't thing FIXING the situation is the right thing to do. When is doing the right thing....a wrong thing? When it interferes with MONEY coming in?
We posted the details in the story:"BIA called out..." and the supporting letter is incriminating..of the BIA and Regional Director Amy Dutschke. Please take a look.
Can we expect justice from a group that was suspected of shady dealings with membership, using the BIA as cover? Read this on the IONE MIWOKS:
Amid the rolling hills of vineyards in what is becoming one of California's fast-growing wine regions, a once-tiny, nearly destitute tribe is pushing hard to build a $100 million casino. It is doing so only because regional Bureau of Indian Affairs officials opened the tribe's membership rolls against the wishes of its traditional leadership, then oversaw an election that swapped the old leadership for a pro-casino group including some BIA officials themselves. One congressman called it an apparent "coup d'etat" that should make other tribes "tremble with fear."
What sets apart the Ione Band of Miwok Indians, however, is the intimate involvement of federal officials charged with overseeing tribal affairs, and what federal and local officials call their stunning conflict of interest. Before the BIA's involvement, about 70 traditional members of the Ione Band of Miwok Indians lived in trailers and manufactured homes on 40 acres near Ione. Now, those BIA officials and their relatives are officially among the tribe's approximately 535 official members. Amy Dutschke, whose family has roots in the Ione area, was the BIA's acting regional director in June 2002 when she authorized the tribe's latest leadership election, BIA and tribal documents show. Dutschke and 68 of her relatives now are on the tribe's official list of registered voters.
Pechanga has a council member, who was adopted into the tribe, along with his entire family, who worked to take over the tribe, and sat in JUDGEMENT of REAL Pechanga people, and got them removed from the tribe. Russell "Butch Murphy" and his entire family don't have the decency to be ashamed of their actions.
Graton Rancheria's Chairman has been accused, or outed by his own family saying they were not Indian.
Navarro first met Sarris in the late 1980s when he contacted the family saying he was the illegitimate son of Navarro’s cousin. She describes her family’s ancestry as a mix of Filipino, Spanish and French and said that she grew concerned after hearing Sarris’s stories about the family, many of which she says are wrong.
What is boils down to is that for a tribe to receive federal recognition, members must be proven native American. Once a tribe is federally recognized, tribal membership is determined by corrupted tribal officials, who can then use unscrupulous tribal attorneys and politicians to maintain their status. One to help them terminate opposition, the other to idly watch and provide cover.
There is NO way for a FAKE INDIAN, to feel the loss of heritage, that REAL INDIANS do.
I can do it too. Have somebody read it to you since it appears you cannot interpret anything posted here.
whatever got to you anonymous 11:46 must have been some serious truth. I applaud your tactic of denying everyone else continuity. Well done. But you must also be well done. Ready for the burn in hell or a long stay in prison. Can't imagine the words on here that really tore at your ego but they have. Blocking us and denying us the privilege of freedom of expression can't feel near as bad as the guilt you are feeling. At least use your own words or aren't you capable of writing your own sentences or having your own thoughts. Whatever your worry is I am glad that I do not have to deal with your conscious. It must be a terrible place to be. What memories have you created for yourself. How sad. Beyond sad. Truly pitiful.
What's this, Chairman Greg Sarris not of native blood?
What are you talking about 210?
It seems that the BIA may be hoisted on its own petard soon.
Can the people who have perpetrated these fake Indians be prosecuted? Those in the Riverside BIA office?
I think 2:10 is responding to whoever keeps posting the long comments, copy and paste of a book or something, kind of like a history lesson, but they are taking up the pages. At least that is what it seems to be. It is from one of the comments on the previous post.
Pala EC has 17 days.....Fix your mistake, end this now while "you" still have the power too.
Pechanga has Butch Murphy voting out real Pechanga people and keeping REAL Pechanga people OUT of the tribe.
Tosobol's should be in. Garbani's out, Murphy's out.
Don't forget Ruth Masial She was orphaned and is not an original allottee and cant or wont show her birth certificate. She is jennies and Andrews mother.
Yeah. Pauline hunter was adopted and so was Margarita Britten and Regilindo Calac but there still indians. So it doesn't matter. Does it?
Where are you getting your information from!!???
Pauline Hunter was NOT adopted, we know who her father was AND her mother. No has ever claimed that she was adopted.
I heard she was a San Luis Rey indian and the Pechanga band adopted her into the tribe. Is this not true? If not true then why were the Hunter descendants disenrolled? They were disenrolled because Pauline was trying to be Pechanga and she wasnt. It's the same as the Trasks trying to be San Pasqual and they are Mesa Grande. Pauline Hunter got away with it for years, she even received an alottment.
San Luis Rey and Pechanga are synonymous. Paulina Hunters parents are the only one associated with Pechanga. Leivas liars arent even Indian. Well except Andy Masiels, who claims A father from Agua Caliente...his own mother was adopted
Honor ALL Ancestors and get your facts straight before you broadcast and dishonor elders. Paulina Hunter was recognized and recorded as Pechanga and Luiseno by several elders who were allowed to give depositions during her heirs allotment allocations. Some of the elders only spoke Luiseno and the records are red ribbon certified under Federal recognition. Several clans share the same CDIB as Paulina Hunter descendants San Luis Rey or Luiseno Indians. Paulina Hunter is Pechanga and showed be honored, just like ALL allotted Indians from Pechanga.
But she is not honored. You don't get honored just because you were born. It also doesn't matter what kind of Indian she was her descendants are not enrolled, therefore who cares? Is there any recourse or way to be enrolled back into Pechanga? I don't think so.
Exactly the truth, she is not honored and neither are several Ancestors of Pechanga. That is a sad fact, and her decedents where recognized and enrolled just like she was until dishonoring the truth and ALL ancestors became Pechanga way. Because of the lies misinformation broadcast you can live with those choices as the Hunter family is living with them also. Take your choices with you and I hope nothing ever duplicates itself. Pechanga was created for a reason, and the Band as a whole can live with the current flow, and dishonor the truth. Take that story to your ceremony.
Maybe Grandfathers purpose is more than we can imagine. Maybe all the natives who sold their souls to their casinos will be damned to hell forever. The way the natives do Casino business is conniving and undermining. Most Native leaders/Dictators believe they are the smartest people ever. They are not. The communities look at them as ignorant people who were fortunate to let the government give them sovereignty. These leaders have given the term "stupid Indian" its validity. Regardless of the Hunters social status they are Gods people. They should be treated as such.....These Casinos will ultimately be the demise of all natives. Money doesn't empower anyone, its distracts from them from our culture and the true Indian way of life.
@12:07, Margarita was not adopted, she was one of the Cupeno that was forced to walk form Warners to Pala with one of her daughters and grand-daughters. You must not read any of the information that is posted on here.
Paulina Hunter's parents, as proved by the Temecula Band of Luiseno Indians from the Pechanga Reservation are the ONLY ones that mention Pechanga on their birth records. And Hunter's are one of the FEW families that still have their allotment. Yet the tribal council STRIPPED them of their citizenship. Why?
Notice how the name for the place is the TEMECULA RESERVATION? Pechanga is a PLACE.

Again the reservation would not be there if the Federal Government did not honor the elders and establish who belonged by depositions recorded and archived. Temecula band of Luiseno Indians! Now its crystal clear why Pechanga does not want to recognize Temecula Indians. It's easier to dishonor ALL members and ALL Ancestors and say we are more Indian than them. Who took over the reservation if your not an allotted family?
They were stripped of their citizenship because they didn't play politics and they pissed off the wrong people. Plain and simple.
May the Creator find more good than bad in ALL! We are ALL here forever! It's not easy to tolerate unkind acts, it's not easy to give others more than than my ego believes they deserve, but hopefully they enjoy it ALL. I sleep and enjoy life better knowing I honor ALL members forever! I learn daily it's better to give than take, and enjoy the ride!
Margarita Britten was not adopted by anyone. She was an original CUPA INDIANS from Warner Springs and was forced to walk with one of her Daughters Esperanza, to the now Pala Indian Reservation.
There is so much DOCUMENTED PROOF that this is beyond TRUE, it's overwhelming. And still it's not good enough for the Pala EC members to except the TRUTH so they pull their HITLER SHIT on these Documented Native Americans.
I think that very soon the Creator will strike one of them for the wrongs that they did to these Native People. And then he will hit some of the supporters of the evil ones, and then go back to the original evil doers and strike again, until their is peace in the valley once more, and no members will have to say,(excuse me Mr. Chairman, can I take a shit now? please. Excuse me Madam Treasure, can I have at least 3 feet of toilet paper? Yes mam I have the other EC members sighed off here on this note.
