The Nooksack Tribe has been informed that ANY actions taken subsequent to their illegal (Nooksack Constitution) election, would not be recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Yet, their "jihad" against the Nooksack 306 KNOWS NO BOUNDS!
Not to be stopped, they are issuing EVICTIONS of their ELDERLY members, WHO HAVE NOT BEEN disenrolled. KATRICE ROMERO, you are a pig.
IS a violent response needed? Or is the legal remedy still the correct one?
The only Remedy for this bullshit by the Corrupt Councils is a 357 and
a shot right between the eyes of the corrupt Chairman that are causing this shit to continue.
One bullet can save hundreds of lives.Just like one Chairman can destroy hundreds of lives.
Please tell me how this old bat even has a house. She enrolled Nooksack fraudulently when she was 65. She needs to be thrown out on her old raggedy ass like the rest of the 306 freeloading bums. Kick rocks all the way back to Canada. Damn thieves.
You clearly have no proof of what you're saying and are talking out your rear end. Thieves?? Really?? Of WHAT??? Basic human rights?? Benefits that still are below the poverty level?? Shut your mouth. You know nothing and are giving the impression, the entire population of Nooksack are as stupid as you are.
I agree with the comment above, anyone who takes a house they aren't entitled to is a thief. Also taking medical benefits and educational benefits you aren't entitled to makes you a thief. 306 has proven they aren't eligible for enrollment so they are theives.
Robert Smith,is a good teacher,of disenrollment
Yea but Smith knows nothing about Customs and Traditions of the Band
that he is Chairman of.
That's is what is going to take him down and he will spend many years in Prison for his cruel punishment of real Native people.
If the Feds don't do something to stop him soon his health will kill him soon.
He is living on borrowed time these days.
We should all pray for his health to take him and put us all out of our misery. AMEN
If the Nooksack 306 don't belong, why did the tribe enroll them? It's a simple question that can only be answered by the tribe.
All bands have rights. Most bands follow custom and tradition similar to ICRA/ Indian Civil Rights Act. Why would individual members of the tribe have less rights than the band it's enrolled in? Mostly it's because bands who practice disenrollment, dishonor what their Ancestors went through to be recognized by the invaders. All recognized bands believe in ICRA, All bands should believe individual members share the same rights.
The ICRA is meaningless. Congress passed it to make the U.S. feel better about all the harm that has been inflicted on Indians through the centuries. Here we have an Act of Congress from 1968 that has failed every judicial test and has given zero protections to the Indians for whom it was supposedly created. It is a useless piece of legislation, and tribes that incorporate it into their governing documents endorse the charade that the federal government wants to protect the rights of Indians.
Oh yeah, let Congress revisit it. Maybe they will repeal it and leave us with nothing. If tribes don't care about civil rights for Indians, why should Congress? At this point what is really necessary is an entirely new law that actually protects the civil rights of Indians, not the ICRA. It is shameful that Congress ever pretended that this legislation would operate to protect Indians.
First Congress created an Act that was useless on its face. Then the Supreme Court ruled that a useless Act, supposedly designed to protect the civil rights of individual Indians against harm inflicted by tribal leaders actually gave permission to tribal leaders to destroy members of tribes by disenrolling them. Nice twist on that one. Such laws are supposed to be interpreted in favor of Indians. Really. It is a principle of statutory interpretation that the Supreme Court set in Worcester v. Georgia.
So the joke is on us Indians. We have a useless Act that Indians incorporate into their governing documents, that is ignored by Congress and tribes, and which the Courts use against Indians. Let's set it aflame in a bonfire and show our level of respect! It is less than trash at this point.
Mel.Lavato look what you and your grandmother done ,members lost there homes,there rights,money,health,land,much more,God will not forgive you until you fix this problem.
What can Mel Lovato do? He's not on the EC. Most he could do is admit that he got it wrong. That won't fix anything.
