Citizenship & Inequality in Native California DAYNA BARRIOS fo CHUMASH

Many of us opposed to the mass tribal disenrollment in Indian Country have worked with Master's candidate Dayna Barrios, of the Chumash Tribe and   Sacramento State.  Her thesis was now been published (link below) in 2016 and we are proud to have contributed to this important work.  We re-post:
Dayna Barrios
Master's Thesis on Tribal Disenrollment
Here's the abstract of her thesis:

Native Americans have endured many hardships throughout history. In modern times, tribal disenrollment is becoming an epidemic for many Native communities. Disenrollment is a non-traditional concept where an individual, or family, is stripped of their tribal citizenship. They are no longer able to participate in tribal affairs, they lose access to healthcare, cultural and financial resources, and the effects are detrimental to an individual’s Native identity and feelings of belonging.
This thesis analyzes the causes and consequences of disenrollment. I interviewed seven disenrolled members from three Native Nations in California to understand how and why they were disenrolled, along with how being disenrolled has affected them and their families. Structural violence, symbolic power, and symbolic violence all play a part in disenrollment and it is a violation of a person’s civil and human rights. Based on my findings, I have concluded that disenrollment is a form of inequality that many Native people are experiencing. I have found that the effects of disenrollment range from the fracturing of an individual’s identity, PTSD and other forms of mental trauma, along with experiencing poverty and a lack of resources.

Include are interviews with Professors, Tribal Chairman and many who have been disenrolled.
