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.

Congrats to Emilio! This is especially useful information for the Chalon Tribe, who was erroneously told by the BIA for decades that they were Chumash or unspecified Costanoan/Ohlone.

This has been going on for years and years. Depends on who is hired to calculate at the BIA. Problem has been that it takes soooooo long to get it corrected. Hoping that changes now...……!

Great work, Emilio! I am hoping that means that the BIA now has to issue each of our family members a letter stating that we are CHUKCHANSI (as that is what my grandmothers 1928's states her as) instead of the all encompassing YOKUTS title--which they say they have to do, with no mention of CHUKCHANSI, ever since we were disenrolled from Picayune more than a decade ago-- regardless of the fact that we are clearly stated as CHUKCHANSI on all 1928 documents of our lineal relations...

The disenrollments in Pala are based on the 1928 rolls (Robert's excuse to the tribe), even though it is against the constitution to use those rolls. Only the Britten family is judged by the 1928 rolls though. Everyone knows that many families would be on the chopping block if all families were judged from the rolls. Now it is proved that they can not be depended on, when we have been saying that forever. The BIA is the worst entity, they do not help Individual Indians at all, they are rude when you talk to them, they take forever to get to your request, they contact Robert the second someone asks for their Blood Degree from Pala, they lie about where your paperwork is, they fail to release or hand in all paperwork when required to, and they lose registered mail. They know the only way to fight them is to take them to court, and they know the government will provide attorneys who rarely lose. So they pretty much can do whatever they please. They never admit fault.

I think that the BIA is worried because they have told so many lies that they can't remember which lie covered which Tribe and that a person as persistent as Emilio Reyes is in finding the truth about there corruption will expose them for what they really are, "WORTHLESS".

@ 11:39pm is correct robert used the 1928 rolls (even though the Pala Constitution says you must use the 1895 and 1913 rolls) both of which state Margarita Britten as FULLBLOOD CUPENO. My guess is Robert amended the enrollment ordinance to say the enrollment committee meaning him can use other dates and documents for enrollment purposes if necessary. The 1928 rolls were banned for enrollment purposes because they are incomplete. Robert gets to pick and chose what he wants to use for enrollment to suit his needs. If 99 documents say you qualify and 1 says you don’t he will use the 1 against you or to enroll you if you support him. Robert is using the part of the 1928 rolls that doesn’t state MB blood degree just says Cupeno and it doesn’t list her father but her daughter is listed as 1/2 Cupeno on it and there are other documents that state she is FULLBLOOD CUPENO and who her father is. There are even probate’s from other tribal members “Warner ranch evictee’s” that say who MB’s father is. These documents have been sent to Robert,Nieto, and the rest of the EC several times over the years but they refuse to look at them or at the disenrollments.

That's because they are only interested in their own agenda and are getting ready for another round of taking more real Cupa members off the rolls.
So be ready you should have taken action before to stop them and correct the wrongs that happened to the Britten family now you have to live in fear that your family is on the chopping block for the next round.
You can't say that you were not warned, you should have listened.

That's what I also herd and smith has to hurry up before his partner Amy Deutchke leaves and retires from the BIA.
I wonder if Smith will hire her to work for the Tribe when she leaves the BIA or will she work for the Mafia in the counter fit dept.

Since Robert used the 1928 rolls to disenroll what happens when the BIA fixes the blood degree like it is supposed to.
Then MB's degree will show as 4/4 like it should have in the very beginning on the 1928 rolls.
