photo courtesey of capecod.com

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s Recall Hearing and Election scheduled for today has been canceled.

Embattled Tribal Council Chairman Cedric Cromwell and Treasurer Gordon Harris were to be questioned about the way tribal finances have been handled.

The tribe’s election committee canceled the recall election as the Wampanoag Supreme Court declined to offer an advisory opinion requested by the tribal council.

The court did say in a filing that it found the recall petitions insufficient.

Kamala Harris Accepts ENDORSEMENT from APARTHEID Leader Mark Macarro

Well, Kamala Harris lost MY vote.  Mark Macarro has led the ABUSE of civil and human rights of Native Americans from his OWN Pechanga tribe in Temecula, CA.  We have reported about the APARTHEID and Segregation.  He disenrolled TWO large families to control his opposition and keep the tribe under his thumb.

YES..SHE KNEW  And she had to apologize to Native Americans, remember? Democrats have ALWAYS supported the apartheid policies of disenrolling tribes

   50 Links to #StopDisenrollment Posts

Mark Macarro is NOT a good man, but Kamala Harris is PROUD to have this TYRANT's approval.   Macarro doesn't respect his OWN tribes history and values and is a disgrace to Native America.  Under a HARRIS administration, 11,000 Native Americans who have been harmed by their own tribes, will NOT have her support.

Dept of Interior in SPAT with Democrats Over Funding and Relocation

YOU MAD, BRO?  A little spat because they have time because they ignore the abuses of human and civil rights under their purview....


The Interior Department announced Thursday it was suspending the practice of allowing congressional staffers for the House Appropriations Committee on department-funded trips, acknowledging a rift between the department and Democratic lawmakers who approve its spending plans.
"The Department of the Interior will not be funding any travel for House Appropriation staff until the ethics issue with their staff is resolved by Chairwoman (Betty) McCollum and the Committee and the assurance is made that all our employees will be treated equally, fairly and respectfully," an Interior Department spokeswoman told CNN.

Washington State: Indians PROTEST NOOKSACK Tribe's Police Brutality

Image
Armed police at NOOKSACK
Anti Free Speech, Brutality


Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 9:00 AM, Indians from throughout Western Washington will gather outside the Nooksack Tribal Court to protest the latest rise in Nooksack tribal police brutality and judicial abuse of process.

Families from the Nooksack Tribe and Lummi Nation and other Puget Sound tribal communities, will descend on Deming, Washington, in traditional song and civil protest.

The protest coincides with a 9:30 AM criminal court appearance by former Nooksack tribal member Elile Adams, who Nooksack Chief Judge Ray Dodge has persecuted since March 2017, when she sought a protection order against the father of her now 5 year-old daughter.

In retaliation against her father George Adams' outspoken support of the Nooksack 306, Dodge converted the protection order proceeding into a child custody proceeding, despite knowing then that Elile Adams had already been awarded custody by the Whatcom County Superior Court.

Despite his awareness of that pre-existing Superior Court proceeding, which under the priority-of-action rule prevented the Tribal Court from assuming jurisdiction over any custody action, has issued no less than twenty orders against Elile over the last thirty months.

Dodge recently held her in criminal contempt of court and cited her with ten felony counts of "custodial interference," and issued a warrant for her arrest when her public defender appeared in court on her behalf in July, while she was away on the annual inter-tribal Canoe Journey.

On July 30, Dodge caused Elile to be arrested by Nooksack cops and jailed in the Whatcom County Jail for nearly eight hours. She has never before been criminally cited or arrested in her life.

During her arrest, Nooksack police brutalized her father George Adams, kicking him in the groin, throwing him against a concrete stairway, and breaking his eye-glasses. (Lynden Tribune).

There have now been at least four documented instances of Nooksack police misconduct and brutality relative to the Nooksack 306 disenrollment controversy (Indian Country Today). In each instance, surrogates of the 306 were assaulted or falsely imprisoned by Nooksack cops.

Conditions are so unsafe and unjust at Nooksack that in April 2019, Elile obtained citizenship with the Lummi Nation for herself and her daughter, after relinquishing each of their enrollments with the Nooksack Tribe.

“Dodge has made my life a living nightmare,” said Elile. “So much so that I have sought asylum and protection from him in the Lummi Nation.”

“‘Asylum-seeking Native’ is a phrase I never thought I’d utter," said Dr. David Wilkins, a leading scholar on tribal citizenship issues. "Nooksack ha[s] degraded into a state of an anarchic nation."

Tomorrow members of Elile's new tribe, as well as several other Coast Salish tribes, will take a traditional stand against the injustice at Nooksack.

Carmen Tageant DEFEATS Nooksack Police Chief Mike Ashby in FEDERAL COURT

After YEARS of abuse from Nooksack Tribe, VICTORY against their oppressive police state.

Carmen Tageant has been recalled from public office, sexually harassed, cyber stalked, and physically assaulted by Nooksack political actors. Tageant’s home has been burglarized twice, and Nooksack police looked away. She has sought protection from tribal, federal, and state law enforcement, to no avail. But last Thursday, the former Nooksack Tribal Councilwoman who has been relentlessly persecuted since speaking out against the Nooksack 306 disenrollment in 2016, scored a legal victory in a Seattle federal court against Nooksack Police Chief Mike Ashby, who she alleges assaulted her at the Tribe’s Election Office on January 5, 2018.




U.S. District Court Judge James Robart denied Ashby’s motion seeking to require the United States to defend him from a personal injury lawsuit that Tageant filed against him in Whatcom County Superior Court soon after the incident.

“I am gratified by the Judge’s decision,” said Tageant. “I am grateful for anything that will help protect me or other Indian women or elders from violence or harassment by Nooksack cops.

In her state court suit, Tageant claims that as she attempted to file papers to declare her candidacy for re-election to the Nooksack Tribal Council, Election Superintendent Katrice Rodriguez announced to her, “you’re too late.” Then “Ashby forcefully grabbed both of [her] arms just above her elbows and violently pushed her back” out of the Election Office, which sits on fee lands beyond the Nooksack Indian Reservation. Tageant “was stunned by Defendant Ashby’s action, telling him, ‘what are you doing? Don’t touch me.’”

In March 2018, Ashby tendered Tageant’s state court lawsuit to the U.S. Department of Justice for defense pursuant to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), given a federal “638” funding agreement between the Nooksack Tribe and United States that assures Nooksack officers federal legal protection under the Federal Tort Claims Act for personal injuries they cause while working under that contract.

A year later, both the U.S. Departments of the Interior and Justice denied Ashby’s defense request. U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington Brian Moran determined that Ashby was not “acting within the scope of his employment” at the time of the incident because the “638 Contract was not intended to cover Chief Ashby’s off reservation enforcement activities.” 

Ashby then sued to compel the United States to defend him, and the matter ended up before Judge Robart.

Agreeing with the federal government, Judge Robart ruled that because the alleged assault occurred on lands beyond the Nooksack Reservation, the Tribe’s 638 contract did not afford Ashby a federal legal defense because he acted beyond the scope of his employment. Rejecting Ashby’s arguments that his job description and Nooksack law enforcement protocols somehow extended Federal Tort Claims Act protection to his off-reservation activities, Judge Robart explained:

“It's outside the reservation, it's outside Indian Country, and saying that it's in his job description or it's standard operating procedure somehow loops it back to be under [the contract] is simply not factually or legally supportable.”
Judge Robart dismissed the matter of Ashby’s Federal Tort Claims Act defense request with prejudice and remanded Tageant’s case back to Whatcom County Superior Court, where it will proceed towards trial.
In support of Tageant, another Nooksack woman, 

Deborah Alexander, stepped forward to explain to Judge Robart how on December 15, 2016, Ashby also put his hands on and assaulted her, without provocation.

Tribal Disenrollment: Airing A Tribe's DIRTY LAUNDRY in PUBLIC is a GOOD THING: SPOTLIGHTS are a GOOD Disinfectant

Image result for original pechanga images
Elder Lawrence Madariaga Died without JUSTICE

I'm reprising a post from 2007 where Pechanga remaining members (remainers?) were upset that we were speaking out in public about the horrid actions of the CPP haters. We culled the story from the old Paulina Hunters blog on My Space, which is seldom seen. In essence, the remainers are upset about being called out, but NOT upset about violations of civil rights, human rights, Pechanga Constitution, Child Molesters....... 


We've received a lot of comments from families of CPP members that we have spoken out against. They are not the least embarrassed about what their relatives have done to the tribe. 

UPDATE: Sorry, for those who don't know the CPP is part of a splinter group of tribal members that conspired to violate the civil rights of some of the membership.

Here's what A. Basquez wrote to Paulina Hunter's My Space :

Hey dont be mad because you cant prove your ancestors because I am a basquez and I am proud of it I have been enrolled since 1973 when were you enrolled when the casino went up thats what I thought. OP: Kind of sweet don't you think? that's only 25 years AFTER Lawrence Madariaga built his house. He would've needed a new roof by then. Please NO comments on spelling here. After all, he admitted his family, so it's understandable. 
.
another comment...this time from shawn (A Scearce relation)

From:Just me
http://www.myspace.com/mechamp1
Date: May 15, 2007 9:33 AM
Date Sent: 5/15/2007 9:33:00 AM:Please leave my family and my people alone, accept the truth and move on....Thank you...."
STOP THE MADNESS!!

MY RESPONSE: 
Shawn, Thanks for writing. We HAVE accepted the truth. The TRUTH is that we were screwed by the Concerned Pechanga People, which includes Butch Murphy, who has NO Pechanga blood. 
Now, the TRUTH, as proved by Pechanga's own hired expert, (The Hunters DID NOT HIRE HIM, Pechanga did) is that Paulina Hunter was Pechanga. 
The TRUTH is, that Pechanga Disenrollment committee has depositions taken in the Luiseno language from 1915 that prove that Paulina Hunter is Pechanga. 
The TRUTH is that Paulina Hunter has census reports from 1895 that says she's from Pechanga. That's 112 years ago. 
YOUR people, is OUR PEOPLE, Shawn. Educate yourself a little more. Ask yourself why a moratorium is legal? Because of the will of the people? Then why wouldn't that same will of the people, that voted overwhelmingly to halt all disenrollments not followed by the tribal council? 
You need to accept the truth Shawn, and know that if you don't help to right the Pechanga ship, it will go down. Would you fight for your rights to be Pechanga? Or would you just walk away and say...hey, it's no big deal? Pechanga has been overtaken by corrupt people, 

Last one:

Delila V. from Pechanga sent me the following email:

your profile is the most fucken stupidist shit ever a real member wouldnt say shit about the tribe TALK SHIT about other families or about anyone from the REZ. use a person that is no longer here wont say who's profile this is so FUCK YOU AND STOP SENDING ME SHIT. DAMMIT! i dont give a fuck if you got dissenrolled if you were truly from Pechanga Reservation then you wouldn't have got dissenrolled..and can prove that ur from there!

Delila, the problem is that WE DID prove that we were from Pechanga, and in fact, the Pechanga Enrollment Committee PROVED we were from Pechanga, by hiring their own expert, who SAID we were from Pechanga
They chose to believe a child molester instead, and one who stood up in the General Meetings and complained the we weren't voting the way they wanted, and a guy who's two sister's are on the enrollment committee. Gloria Wright, who came to the reservation 100 years after Paulina was there, and of course, one who doesn't even want her brother in the tribe. 
I understand that you don't care if we got disenrolled, you benefit by more people getting kicked out

DIRTY LAUNDRY must be aired, otherwise people can say, "WE DIDN'T KNOW".
How to do it?  SHARE the information...OVER and OVER, on social media, via email.  Let people know WHERE to look for the information.  I think this blog has done a decent job in 9 years,  help it get more notice....

Democrats Who Play the Victim Card on Civil Rights Are USELESS in Indian Country

 Many news media and Hollywood types are out with comments like "If you support Trump, you support RACISM!  It has me asking, if you don't STAND AGAINST the moral stains created by disenrolling tribes, does that mean YOU SUPPORT ABUSES of Civil and Human RIGHTS?!

Robinson Rancheria Protest
Led to restoration of all rights for Disenrolled
















For over a DECADE, we've written to our State's Senators (Barbara Boxer , Feinstein and most recently Harris ), local Representatives and at least THREE U.S. Attorney Generals (Holder,  Lynch, and most recently Jeff Sessions)   Crickets chirping is the usual response.  And the entertainers, yes we wrote to many, asking them not to perform at an APARTHEID reservation, including George Lopez and Gabriel Iglesias, who we sent more than 50 faxes.  Not a response.  Does this mean they approve of civil rights abuses?

Here's what we've seen on the Charlottesville/Trump response and the lumping everyone together.

The HONORABLE Jack "ass" Potter

The Redding Rancheria Tribe announced that they will be continuing with the placement of the Win-River Casino at Strawberry Fields in Redding during Tuesday's city council meeting.

Many in Indian Country SWALLOW Elizabeth Warren's "Act of Contrition at Frank LaMere Forum


Proving that it's more important to coddle a DEMOCRAT, than it is to be honest about her actions, prominent Natives, including Deb Haaland, a Laguna Pueblo citizen, dismissing the actions of Natives who still harbor resentment to Elizabeth Warren appropriation of Cherokee Heritage.

Rep. Haaland, who endorsed Ms. Warren last month, takes a different view than those critics. Introducing Ms. Warren at the forum, she noted that some in the news media had asked her  whether Mr. Trump’s criticism of Ms. Warren over her ancestry would “hamper her ability to convey a clear campaign message.”    OP:  SO??

Rolling Hills Casino Tribe Officials, PLEAD GUILTY To CONSPIRACY

Former officials that is.  Embezzlers, Cheaters. THIEVES

The allegations in the indictment were breathtaking: three former officials of the tribe that runs the Rolling Hills Casino had embezzled $6 million and used the money to buy lavish homes, cars and gold coins and for travel overseas.

The allegations laid out in 2017 in a 69-count indictment and an earlier federal civil suit claimed the three had gone on a “12-year looting spree” and used the money to buy tickets to World Series, Final Four and NBA games and charter private jets and then lied to federal agents investigating the conspiracy.

All three defendants – including one who was a former FBI agent in Sacramento – denied the charges and were headed for trial next month in federal court in Sacramento.

CUPENO INDIANS Get NO JUSTICE from their 1903 Trail of Tears



ACEE AGOYO of INDIANZ has the FULL STORY



The tribe's unique history had long been reflected in how it appeared on the BIA's annually-published list: as the "Pala Band of Luiseño Mission Indians of the Pala Reservation, California." With the Cupeño descendants largely out of the picture, though, there was no need to remind everyone of the distinct communities on the reservation. Starting in 2016, as the last of the anti-disenrollment lawsuits was defeated in the federal courts, the tribe became simply known as the "Pala Band of Mission Indians."

Prominent Dems Who Support APARTHEID at Pechanga By Accepting Their Money

IF DEMOCRATS REALLY ARE THE PARTY of Civil Rights, why don't they WALK IT LIKE THEY TALK IT?

It's becoming apparent that naming names is what's needed.  Any politician that accepts donations from Pechanga or ANY tribe that disenrolls their people in the manner of Pechanga, Redding, Chukchansi and Nooksack is complicit and endorses the APARTHEID and Civil and Human Rights Violations those tribes practice.

Similar to Joaquin Castro publishing donor names to Donald Trump, exposing them as haters. For those that agree with that tactic, here are prominent Democrats, including Presidential Candidates Kamala Harris and  Amy Klobuchar, who are A-OK with the Apartheid, Segregation, Civil and Human Rights abuses from the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians of Temecula, led by Mark Macarro and his lobbyist wife.

Redding City Council OPPOSES new Redding Rancheria Casino

If only the reason was because the Redding Rancheria violated the civil and human rights of the family of the tribe's first chairman after the tribe was restored, Robert Foreman.   If they cheat their OWN PEOPLE, we can believe they will cheat their customers and the city/county.

The Redding City Council unanimously voted on Monday evening in a special meeting to send a formal letter stating their concerns and expressing opposition about the proposed location for the Win River Expansion Project.
The motion for a formal letter was made by Mayor Julie Winter to have two city council members write the letter and review it with city staff before bringing it back to the full council for a final review before sending it to the Redding Rancheria and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) who will be the ones deciding if the project moves forward. The two council members drafting the formal letter are Erin Resnor, Mayor Pro Tempore and Michael Dacquisto.
Despite many that supported, a significant amount of people also spoke against the expansion project for reasons including traffic concerns, environmental concerns, no benefit for the city, higher volume of calls for emergency services, taking away from local businesses in Redding - among other things.

Los Angeles Rams Partner with Apartheid, Segregation Tribe, Pechanga Which Abused their Own Elders and Children


Rams OK with Apartheid

  
Turning a blind eye to the human and civil rights abuses including Apartheid and Segregation, (as well as trapping rightful members in a phony moratorium) by the Mark Macarro led Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, the NFL Los Angeles Rams football team and Pechanga Resort Casino have announced a one-year partnership that makes Pechanga the official Indian casino of the sports franchise. The partnership will cross-promote the two entities and bring new philanthropic events to Southern California, according to a statement from Pechanga.


“The Los Angeles Rams represent such a storied franchise,” said Jared Munoa, president of Pechanga Development Corp. and whose OWN FAMILY is kept from the tribal membership rolls. “We are thrilled to join forces with a team that brought a Super Bowl run back to Los Angeles and has made such a deep commitment to the broader Southern California community.
“This partnership will help us provide exclusive VIP experiences for our Pechanga guests while also engaging fans before, during and after games.”

Jason Griffiths, Rams VP of Partnerships added, “Pechanga shares our commitment to give back to our neighbors and we are looking forward to developing meaningful programs with them to inspire Angelenos to shine bright. We are excited to welcome Pechanga to our family of partners and to work with them to enhance game days for our fans.”
The one-year agreement gives Pechanga access to premium in-stadium seating areas during games at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum; the ability to develop a variety of VIP events with the team; a halftime presenting sponsor; and a media presence in the Rams’ radio and television channels before and after games.

The MORAL Bankruptcy of NARF, NCAI and NIGA Which are ALL Missing In Action on Dismemberment Of Native Americans

Professor David Wilkins, who has written extensively on disenrollment, calls out Native American organizations that we've written about who've buried their heads in the sand to avoid the topic of Indians abused by their own tribes.  If these "interest" groups don't stand up against disenrollment of thousands of Native Americans, that means they are FOR IT, right?

NARF, NCAI and NIGA

Here is an open letter to the leaders of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), Native American Rights Fund (NARF), and National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA):
Dear Native Leaders,
Each of your organizations, founded at critical moments in native history–NCAI in 1944, NARF in 1970, and NIGA in 1985– have and continue to play vital roles in the political, legal, and economic development of Native nations. I write you all now to request that you continue to remain vital and relevant by taking an unequivocal stand against spurious disenrollment practices that destroy the human and civil rights of individual native citizens and threaten the sovereign powers of all Native nations.

What is the CHUKCHANSI WORD for CHUTZPAH? Bear Spray using Tribe To Hold Seminar on Violence

We may never know if they keep disenrolling their language speakers before they walk on.   The Chukchansi tribe, which used bear spray and burning logs on their elders, will hold a  seminar on "VIOLENCE is NOT OUR CULTURE"!    My friend Cathy Cory says:    Tribal disenrollment is the worst kind of domestic violence and lateral violence against one's own kin. The furthering of generational trauma to self-decimate one's people beneath the guise of self-determination and the abuse of sovereignty to the detriment of all our native community

From 2014
  • Lewis' group is even accused of going as far as hiring armed security guards to intimidate the other group.
  • Lewis said his officers do carry stun guns.
  • Madera County Sheriff's Spokeswoman Erica Stuart says a woman threw a rock at a fire engine, as the engine and deputies were responding to an initial call of shots fired.
Sounds cultural, right?  But these people draw the limit at wife beating?

Washington State's NOOKSACK TRIBE Persecutes Disenrolled While DOJ Ignores UPDATED

Ray Dodge

From the Facebook page of one of the disenrolled Nooksack 306:


On July 30, 2019, at 10 am, I was arrested by "Nooksack Police Department," under false pretense.

"Officer" Daniel Bennett came inside my home without knocking, or without my consent.
I yelled at him, "You are not allowed to be in here. I did not give you consent to be in here."
Bennet said, "I can come in here. We do have the right because there is a warrant out for your arrest! I came in because I saw your daughter all by herself."

They booked me into Whatcom County Jail under "FTA Interference with Parentage". Sadly, even the Jailer Officer, who booked me in at WCJ said, "This is a bogus arrest!"
I replied, " Yes! There are rapist and murderers out there that need to be in here!"
WCJ is no place for a charge of an FTA Interference with Parentage. It is not crime to protect your child.

Dave Palermo, Gaming Tribes Advocate DEAD at 71

Dave Palermo, contributor to Pechanga.net, run by the asshole Victor Rocha, has died by suicide.  He wrote a few times on disenrollment, yet never told the complete story.  We wrote about that here:

Tribal Brother Vs. Tribal Brother: Pala and Pechanga Disenrollment DAVE PALERMO is LAZY on this


After finishing up his daily reporting career in Mississippi covering the growing gaming industry and American Indian gaming, Palermo shifted his focus to advocacy for the tribes. That work took him to Sacramento, California; Flagstaff, Arizona; and Washington, D.C. The Hopi Indian Nation and its people were sacred in his life.

Palermo turned himself into an expert in Indian gaming but also in Native American sovereignty, history, social problems and programs aimed at rebuilding tribal communities. He could cite legal cases and Indian gaming regulations like a lawyer. His expertise grew as he worked for tribes to represent Native American interests to federal and state lawmakers and regulators.

 TRIBES ANGRY at KAMALA HARRIS

When he returned to Las Vegas in the early 2000s, he continued writing and researching American Indian gaming issues as a regular contributor, mostly in industry publications. He also wrote letters and speeches, and he moderated panels.

Happy Independence Day Original Pechanga Blog Readers. Continue the FIGHT for Our Rights!

Two hundred and forty one years ago, some of our greatest patriots created a document that has stood the test of time. it wasn't perfect

Ben Franklin 1787:   
Much of the strength & efficiency of any Government in procuring and securing happiness to the people, depends, on opinion, on the general opinion of the goodness of the Government, as well as of the wisdom and integrity of its Governors.

Independence Day 2017 marks the 13th year of termination for the Pablo Apish descendents from the Manuela Miranda family and the 11th year for the family of Original Pechanga Allottee Paulina Hunter, who Pechanga's expert proved was indeed Pechanga Indian. It's been more than a DECADE and a half for Moratorium people.

Celebrating BREXIT 1776


 We will continue to fight for our rights as Pechanga people and continue to work for the rights of all disenfranchised Native Americans. America's independence was not won overnight and this struggle of ours, can't be won overnight either.

We must continue to educate our politicians and our local citizenry at every opportunity. We've had some successes and success breeds success. We need more friends and family to get involved and help keep the volume of the injustices perpetrated on Indian people...BY Indian people, mainly the corrupt tribal councils that proceed in stripping civil and human rights from Indian people across our country. 

Please HELP us.
By passing this blog along to your friends, by visiting here often and by sharing the link http://originalpechanga.com/ on your Facebook and Twitter pages and GOOGLE + each post.

You can help us be more visible and increased visibility is one way for us to combat the excessive amounts of money that gaming tribes have.  Robinson Rancheria has welcomed their people home, following the lead of the Enterprise Rancheria.  Keep the SPOTLIGHT shining on the corruption

We'd like to wish all readers across the country a  .
Happy 4th of July!

Doing her Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians ancestors proud, 21 year old Elizabeth Sartuche, the current Miss University Heights represented her family and her ancestors well by achieving a place on this year's court, as 3rd runner up in the Miss California pageant this past weekend in Fresno, CA.
She's been successful in the pageant circuit with musical talents and an outgoing spirit and of course, her beauty. You can follow her on Instagram:  sartooch  and  missuniversityheights (until her current reign ends) Most of us don't have a clue as to the work and effort it takes to be successful in the pageant industry.  Hopefully, we will see her next year, as Miss California.

Elizabeth is descended from Pechanga's Manuela Miranda Lucy Moreno, and Fred Sartuche, SR. We've posted on the Manuela Miranda's descendants here and here and she is proof positive that her Native American ancestors have instilled a pride in effort.     WELL DONE ELIZABETH

Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians Continues Their Genocide UPDATED

PRCI continues SHAMING their "tribe"

The Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians, who are the most egregious perpetrators of disenrollment this century, continues their shameful ways. Reports coming in from Coarsegold, CA that their are more disenrollments on the way.

The #stopdisenrollment movement has been shining a spotlight on the abuses of native Americans that we've been reporting on for a dozen years.  The exposure hasn't stopped tribes like Chukchansi from exterminating their own people, to enrich those remaining.

National Park Service Gives HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS to Tribes for BONES, but IGNORE What they DID TO THE LIVING.



The National Park Service announces grants in the millions to preserve their history. But they give money to tribes that abuse the LIVING, and have disrespected their own dead via Tribal Disenrollment

ELEM, PALA, PECHANGA, PICAYUNE, PINOLEVILLE, SAN PASQUAL and SHINGLE SPRINGS among the recipients of grants of $50,000 or more in order to "locate and preserve artifacts".  We just wrote about Pechanga usurping the Gabrieleno Tongva people's ancestor's remains.    Perhaps these disenrolling tribes should worry about preserving their most valuable resource--their Indian PEOPLE--first. It wouldn't take much time, energy, or money to locate the thousands of living indian people, from whom their corrupt tribal governments have stolen their very birthright through disenrollment and moratoriums.  BONES shouldn't be more important than people

Here is a list of disenrolling tribes at the amounts our government granted:
