AHTNA RESPONDS to DAILY BEAST ARTICLE TO CORRECT THE RECORD

We posted the Daily Beast story earlier this week. It's only FAIR we post AHTNA's side here.


The Port Isabel Detention Center (PIDC) in Los Fresnos, TX has been in the news lately in connection with the ongoing national discussion regarding U.S. immigration policies. Ahtna Support and Training Services (AhtnaSTS)[1] has a contract to provide detention center services at PIDC, and a recent story by The Daily Beast contained several inaccuracies and misrepresentations about our management of this facility. We wanted to take a moment to clarify a few key facts – and address how the core values of our corporation with regard to respect, safety, quality and integrity guide every aspect of the important work we do at PIDC.

Native American Tribes CLASH with UC Over BONES, IGNORE the LIVING. Pechanga Accused of Theft of Ancestors

Cal Matters has an interesting article up today authored by Felicia Mello, this rebuttal of sorts, will be heavily linked by me and I'd love it if you'd take a look at them and share on social media:

Myra Masiel


As tribal archaeologist for the Pechanga Band of LuiseƱo Indians, Myra Masiel uses her UC Berkeley anthropology training daily. Her mission: track down skeletons of Native Californians extracted from gravesites over the last two centuries and shipped off to museums around the world, and return them to the tribe’s ancestral land near Temecula so they can be reburied with dignity.



OP: Masiel is part of Pechanga's Masiel Basquez Crime Family, which we documented. That family also has been determined to have falsified Bureau of Indian Affairs Documents while employed in the Riverside Office.

Emilio Reyes Victorious Against BIA WRONGDOING.

Good News against some bad activity from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  Our friend EMILIO REYES has the news on his FACEBOOK PAGE




21,977 California Indian applications were approved under the act of 1928. About 584 applications were approved on the 1928 California Indian Judgment Roll as “Unknown Tribe,” 97 approved as “Tribe Not Given” 70 approved as “Mission Tribe” and 5 approved as “California Tribe.”

The BIA has wrongfully assigned some of these Native applicants in wrong tribes, changed their blood quantum, and have been withholding and redacting their historical errors.

Note: the records from the National Archives are inconsistent with BIA records on these 1928 applications.

Effective today, the BIA cannot redact or withheld any information on the 1928 applications and must show to the public, upon request, each applicant’s determined tribal affiliation and correct blood degree.

WHOA...  who will the NCAI BACK on this?  Trump or one of TRUMP's ally's in the "putting kids in a cage" issue?

THE NCAI certainly doesn't care about civil rights violations, do they



Ahtna, Inc. is one of a number of companies profiting off of the deportation of undocumented immigrants from the United States. Previous reporting by The Daily Beast has revealed that the federal government currently employs the services of several companies and charities bringing in millions of dollars off of the Trump administration’s treatment of immigrant families.
The Ahtna, who have also run immigrant detention centers in New York, Florida, and Arizona in addition to Port Isabel, fall under the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) umbrella, and Ahtna, Inc. is an Alaska Native Regional Corporation established by Congress under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971.
