#StopDisenrollment: Graton Rancheria Chairman GREG SARRIS Stands UP Against Disenrollment

Wonderful to see a TRIBAL LEADER stand up AGAINST the scourge of DISENROLLMENT.  Lead the way, Mr. Chairman.   

As a matter of respect for the sovereignty of other tribes, the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria does not take a position on, nor take sides in, internal tribal disputes. 

However, our record is clear on the subject of disenrollment. Our tribe has firmly rejected disenrollment, has written a prohibition against disenrollment into our tribal constitution and has taken every possible measure to ensure that this prohibition cannot be undone in the future. 

We hope that other tribes will follow our example so that all Indian people can be secure in their tribal membership and continue to restore and strengthen the social and cultural ties of our people.

Thank you Chairman Sarris for being a true brave! More tribal leaders should follow in your footsteps.

He made certain he cannot be disenrolled because he is non-Indian.

This guy is about as Indian as Iron Eyes Cody.

Is this the same Greg sarris who tried to become a member of Kashia pomos and was denied because he was not Indian or the one who’s own sister who has the same mother and father claims no native ancestry ? Or the one who has become so important you can’t speak with him unless you make an appointment ? Or the one teaching about native history and committing Genocide at the same time ? Wonderful to see all that he is doing for the children of our beautiful county ? Or the one who changes ordinances at will to protect himself from being exposed for what he truly is ? This can’t be the same guy that used his native America as a platform for self interest ! Would love to see him in an interview that allows children and all others to ask questions instead of all the staged interviews that he creates !
