Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians Destroyed Their TRUE ANCESTORS

Repost from 2010, for those who don't know the story:
Hunter cousin A'amokat has put together some historical facts on the Disenrollment of Paulina Hunter to answer a frequent "drive-by" commenter that smoothly says we couldn't prove our ancestry.  Yet, we have more evidence than ANY other family currently enrolled in Pechanga.  And people want to boycott Arizona for civil rights violations?  Try Pechanga.

Paulina Hunter
Recognized as Pechanga by those living at her time
Our critic from the tribe says we never answer what he considers tough questions but we have done so many times but since he just pops in and runs, I will tackle those issues once again for all to see.

1. “Dear Reader, that the mouthpieces for the Hunter clan never address the fact that their declared ancestor, Paulina Walla Hunter, had no available birth record.”

While it is true we couldn’t find a birth record for our ancestor Paulina Hunter, she is not alone in this regard as Dr. John Johnson from the Museum of Natural History in Santa Barbara, Ca, commissioned by the enrollment committee to research the ancestry of Paulina Hunter, said in his report to the committee, “The original books of baptisms, marriages, and burials for Mission San Luis Rey have been lost for more than 150 years which hinders many Luiseno families in their search for documentary evidence pertaining to their ancestors.”

So a lot of today’s Pechanga tribal members also don‘t have birth records for their ancestors who were born during the period after the surviving San Luis Rey padrones (census records), which were recorded between 1811 to 1835. So the only thing this proves is that Paulina Hunter was in the same boat as a lot of other tribal members from the historical period.

2. “Or the fact that while the historical record lists the parents of PWH, nobody knows their ancestry.”
While Paulina Hunter’s maiden name is listed as Walla in some records Dr. Johnson in his report on her ancestry indentifies her family name as being Quasicac and that the man who was almost certainly her father, Mateo, was the only Indian listed in the pardrones as being born at the place known as Pechanga over 75 years before the Pechanga reservation was even created! Also the records indicate that her maternal grandmother, Restituta Quenix, was from the from the original Temecula Indian village.
So how can we explain the discrepancy of last names from one generation to another generation?
Again Dr. Johnson elaborates in his report to the enrollment committee on the ancestry of Paulina Hunter:
Many Indian families of this period (the 1800’s) were adopting the use of surnames, as was the Euro-American custom. The church records show that there was considerable experimentation with surname use by all former Mission Indians. A variety of surnames would be used, even within the same family, before one version was finally chosen that continued to be used as an inherited family name.”

So again the Hunters are in the same boat as a lot of other Pechanga families in proving with 100 percent certainty by today’s modern standards that their ancestors from previous generations, who often also had different last names from one generation to the next, are indeed their ancestors.

3. “Or the uncomfortable fact that the Bureau of Indian Affairs has no Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood on file for PWH, meaning the BIA never tracked PWH as an Indian.”

If the BIA never recognized Paulina Hunter as a Pechanga Indian or even an Indian at all, then why do Hunter family members have CDIB cards that say Pechanga and why didn’t the enrollment committee make it an issue during the Hunter’s disenrollments?
One would think that if, as our esteemed critic from the tribe tries to imply, that if we the Hunters weren’t even Native Americans that the committee would have stated this was the case. After all, a slim majority of the committee, as we have shown here on this blog many times, was biased against us and I am sure they would have jumped at the chance to try to even further discredit us.

In fact the enrollment committee in its Record of Decision against the Hunters of March 16, 2006 stated:
“Nothing in the Committee’s findings shall be construed or interpreted that the Committee is making a determination of the Indian or Native American status of Paulina Hunter or her descendants.”
Also, in addition to the fact that the Hunters do have CDIBs, Hunter family members who have gone through probate for their share of the Hunter family allotment have official probate documents from the United States Department of the Interior that name their loved ones as “deceased Luiseno Mission (Pechanga Band) Indians” including those who have gone through probate after the Hunter family disenrollment.
So clearly the United States government still considers us Pechanga Indians even if the tribe officially at this time does not.

4. “Hunter clan tried to bring politics to bear on the disenrollment process, to stop its proper function of removing non-members from the membership roll. This effort failed. The process went forward. Doing its duty, the enrollment committee disenrolled the Hunter clan, returning it to its true status as non-members.”

The Hunters played politics with the process? Nothing could be further from the truth as it was our opponents who played politics with the process by perverting the process by going against the wishes of the people.
Because on July 17, 2005 the general membership of the tribe, the final authority in all matters of tribal government and business of the Band under Article VIII of the Band’s constitution and bylaws, voted to outlaw disenrollment and to strike from the books the disenrollment procedures. This law stated that as of the justification date of the petition of the new law, June 19, 2005, that all tribal members in the Band would remain tribal members and could not be disenrolled. So the disenrollment of the Hunters on March 16, 2006 was clearly illegal. By the way, the Hunter family were not the ones who presented the petition to outlaw disenrollment to the people so no, we were not playing politics with the process.

And I haven’t even scratched the surface by showing here once again how the evidence was very much in our favor but instead of what our opponent would have you believe, the list goes on and on in our favor not the other way around.

Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation DENIED Federal Recogntition

Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation logo


The Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation has been waiting 37 years for a decision from the U.S. government about their petition for federal acknowledgment as a Native American tribe.

The California tribe with historic ties to Yosemite National Park and surrounding areas received bad news a year ago indicating a final decision denying them federal recognition could be near. A proposed finding with this recommendation was issued, looking at just one part of one of seven criteria, defining the tribe’s modern community.

It’s an unexpected finding, and an unexpectedly brief 25-page response, for the tribe which has submitted thousands of documents and endured decades of back-and-forth with the Office of Federal Acknowledgment.

A public comment period is underway. The deadline for submitting letters is
Nov. 18.

City of Temecula Proudly Joins Apartheid and Civil Rights Abusing Tribe in Celebrating Uh, Heritage and History

The City of Temecula is perfectly fine with their tribal neighbor, The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, a tribe that has violated the rights of their tribal citizens, their ancestors and re-wrote the tribal history to fit a narrative, while practices apartheid and segregation on their reservation.  Hey, if those values are okay with the Rams and the Lakers....?

As we celebrate Native American Heritage Month in November, join us for Pechanga Pu'??ska Mountain Day, Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, at 11:30 a.m. at City Hall, in the Conference Center, as we honor the history and heritage of the Pechanga Tribe. 


Should we have an annual Pechanga disenrollment parade on this day..that's part of Pechanga's history and heritage.

Native American Heritage Month : RESTORE the Citizenship and BIRTHRIGHT to Disenrolled Native Americans


Re-postThis month-long holiday is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to pay homage to the important and numerous contributions of Native American people throughout the centuries.

Left unsaid is the issue of over 11,000 Native Americans who suffered the abuse of tribal disenrollment, moratoriums and banishment  at the hand of their own tribes.  This holiday month presents the PERFECT opportunity for tribes to restore their people to their rightful place in the tribe, to bring all the people home.

NCAI AGAIN IGNORES 10,000 NATIVES Culturally Homeless Due to Disenrollment

ANOTHER YEAR of SILENCE on the #StopDisenrollment Issue this year of the 76th Annual Marketplace in Albuquerque NM.  This year is at least the 15th year of refusal to acknowledge the abuse of Natives BY Natives



For years, we have reported that the National Congress of American Indians has stood by in silence, while over 10,000 American Indians have had their civil and human rights abused by Tribes who have disenrolled their people.

Tribal Disenrollments Are "Like Being Raped,Then Going to the RAPIST for Justice"

 A news story on tribal disenrollments and moratoriums had the perfect quote as a post title, from Carla Maslin, from the Redding Rancheria of Northern California. 400 Pechanga People know exactly what she means, having been "raped" of their citizenship, benefits and security by Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro, the enrollment committee led by Bobbi LeMere and certain members of the Tribal Council, Russell "Butch" Murphy and Andrew Masiel among them.

From that article:

Tribal membership disputes are also a problem across the country, with as many as 4,000 tribe members fighting for enrollment, said Carla Maslin, a disenrolled member of the Redding Rancheria in Northern California and an advocate for disenfranchised tribe members.
Maslin's case has gone nowhere in tribal court, she said. "It's like being raped and going to the person who raped you for justice," Maslin said.

KAMALA HARRIS in Quid Pro Quo Chooses Leader of APARTHEID Tribal Nation to Her Tribal Leadership Council


Bottom tier Presidential candidate for the Democratic Party Senator Kamala Harris has announcee her Native American Platform. She ignored the pleas of those who needed help when she was California's Attorney General, which we wrote about here  We hoped she would be better than Barbara Boxer. Alas, no, Kamala Harris so bad and worthless, we almost miss Boxer, whose son was caught bilking a Native American Tribe

We wrote in September, that she gladly accepted the endorsement of the tyrannical leader from the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians Mark Macarro and now the QUID PRO QUO...a spot on her "leadership council".   

Mark Macarro has led the ABUSE of civil/human rights of Native Americans from his Pechanga tribe in Temecula, CA. We have reported about the APARTHEID and Segregation. He led the disenrollment 2 large families to control his opposition, disenfranchising tribal voters and keep the tribe under his thumb. A good democrat?

Key aspects of her Native Issues  plan include:
  • Honor tribal sovereignty: Hold an annual Tribal Nations Summit to hear from tribal leaders and youth and collaborate on ways to improve Native Americans' quality of life and access to justice.
  • Restore tribal lands: Push Congress to amend the Indian Reorganization Act (IRA) to clarify that tribes federally recognized after 1934 can receive land into trust; take 500,000 acres of land into trust.

  • Promote health equity: Maximize tribes' autonomy over their IHS programs so they can provide culturally competent, holistic care.

Mark Macarro's Legacy,BIG CASINO,Banishment,Moratoriums &Tribal Disenrollment. Apartheid, Segregation, Civil Rights Violations

Family Pride, Keeps his COUSIN out of Pechanga

The Miracle Worker, some call Mark Macarro, as last year, he pulled off a MIRACLE.  NO OPPOSITION for ANY incumbent.  Even Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping couldn't pull that off, wel Jinping could...but he's a TYRANT extraordinaire..

While most in California will know Macarro as the face of tribal gaming, having appeared in many commercials promising increased benefits for California, most may not know of what he has done to his own tribe.

  • Oversaw the illegal termination of 25% of his tribal membership, in order to consolidate power and increase the monetary gains for he, his family and the remaining tribal members.  While tribes determine enrollment, the Macarro-led council overruled the people's desire to end all disenrollments.

Native American Burial Site HALTS 405 Freeway Construction in Orange Country

Image result for NAGPRA images    A road widening project has been indefinitely halted after a Native American burial site was believed discovered in a construction zone for the 405 Freeway.

Construction workers who were excavating as part of the I-405 Improvement Project spotted the remains, including bones, on Sept. 25 at an undisclosed location. According to Eric Carpenter of the Orange County Transit Authority, agency officials are prohibited by law from providing a location or description of a grave or sacred places.

After consulting with the Orange County Coroner’s office, the case was passed to the California Native American Heritage Commission, which will try to find out which tribe the remains might be linked to.

“OCTA and its partners recognize the cultural sensitivity of the issue and will work with all parties involved to ensure appropriate and respectful procedures are followed,” Carpenter said. “It’s unclear at this point what effect, if any, it will have on the construction schedule or cost.”

Dayna Barrios:Citizenship & Inequality in Native California

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.

Shasta County say NO to Win River Casino Relocation in Unanimous Vote.

Redding Rancheria Chairman
Jack Potter
The Shasta County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 on Tuesday to send a letter formally opposing the relocation of the Win-River Casino and Resort to Strawberry Fields.  It was a BLOW to tribe known for abusing its elders, and violating the civil and human rights of the Foreman Family, descendents of their first chairman Robert Foreman.

In its letter sent in August, the Redding council said it was also willing to work to help the tribe "identify alternative locations that will not result in detrimental impacts to the city and its residents."

In response, about 100 supporters of the tribe's relocation plan rose nearly in unison and walked out of the board chambers as Chairman Leonard Moty was giving the closing address.  OP:  BYE!

"I just want to say, just before you leave, I'm sure a lot of people are disappointed but I want to tell you I appreciate your civility," said Moty before his voice trailed off as people in the audience — many wearing red T-shirts that read "Support the Tribe" — stood and walked out.

The supervisors' vote echoed the sentiment of the Redding City Council. Those elected officials also voted unanimously to oppose the Redding Rancheria tribe's effort to relocate and expand to a site directly off Interstate 5.


Tribal Disenrollment a VIOLATION of the INDIAN CIVIL RIGHTS ACT?

Civil Rights attorney Donald R. Daines has written a post for us concerning the BIA and those with a "BIA Agenda", which surprisingly can be some tribal leaders. We repost that today.

The US BIA only violates Sovereignty when it is in their best interest. That’s why the BIA is known as the Bureau of Indian Annihilation. Once the BIA inserts the people its wants in power over the Tribal Nation, then when the People object and want their real leaders, the BIA says it cannot interfere because the dispute (which the BIA created in the first place) is an ‘internal’ problem which Tribal sovereignty prevents the BIA from interfering with. What took place in 1993 with the Oneida Indians of New York (not the Oneida Indian Nation that has existed for a 1,000 years as part of the Haudenosaune, but an entirely new ‘tribe’ called the Oneida Indian Nation of New York) is a textbook example of how the BIA (Bureau of Indian Annihilation) works.

GET OVER DISENROLLMENT? F**K YOU! Says Hopland's Michelle Hammock:

Michelle Hammock Hopland Disenrolled

My friend Michelle Hammock, one of the HOPLAND 74 disenrolled has a powerful piece up on her webpage .  I was proud to share a podium with her in Sacramento as we shared our stories of disenrollment, I wrote about that here.  I ripped my speech up after hearing hers..

The act of disenrollment is an act of genocide, whether the Genocide Convention recognizes it as such or not. It removes the living and deceased identities of federally recognized individuals and strips them of their treaty rights, their tribal constitutional rights, and their legal identities. It breaks families apart and expires the identities of a group of people. It strips them of the federal protections afforded to only Native tribal people uniquely agreed upon with our dominantly white government.

And we are called hateful for decrying the acts. For calling it out and never letting it be forgotten. We are the hate filled ones that need to shut our mouths for the sake of other people’s reputations. We are told to get over it. We are told that because of “our” hate that no one would want us back. We are told that we are so blinded in hate that we cannot offer anything to our tribes.    And to that I say Fuck You!

Tribal Membership Revocations: Disenrolling for Dollars



Well over $500 MILLION DOLLARS now.   Here's something from Dennis J. Whittlesey & Patrick Sullivan
This was first posted in JULY, but the timing is good to bring this back
Over the past several years, there have been a series of publicized tribal enrollment revocations of enrolled members – including former tribal leaders – and their entire families. While this phenomenon was extremely rare in the past, it is becoming increasingly and disturbingly common.
Many in Indian Country openly trace this activity from the date on which the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law in 1988 and tribes too often spending large amounts of their casino revenues in per capita payments to tribal members. In some cases, as tribal populations grew, revenue distributions were accordingly reduced to continue payments to all members. In other cases, the economic downturn that dates back to 2007-08 led to reduced casino revenues and, in turn, reduced individual payments. Still, many have linked dollar reductions in per capita payments to the increase in expelling members.
These facts are well reported and discussed below in some detail. The casual reader will ask how this could be possible, or even legal. Various legal challenges to disenrollments have been unsuccessful, whether they directly challenge the tribes themselves or seek to compel the Bureau of Indian Affairs (“BIA”) to intervene.
Tribal Challenges usually are made in the face of tribal sovereign immunity and are routinely dismissed. While the federal Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968 ostensibly offers legal protections to the victims of enrollment revocations, the reality is that the law is toothless and is not the vehicle through which individual Indians have gained much of anything in the way of rights protection.

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.

NOOKSACK Court Judge RAY DODGE SUES INDIAN LITIGANTS IN HIS COURTROOM FOR LIBEL

Dodge’s Claim: Elile Adams’ Statement That He’s Made “My Life a Living Nightmare,” and George Adams’ “Pretend Judge” Barb on Facebook, Harmed His Reputation   (BOO freaking HOO)
Seattle, WA – Last week, Nooksack Tribal Court Chief Judge Ray Dodge filed a libel claim in Whatcom County Superior Court against two Native Americans involved in cases pending before him who have criticized his misuse of the Tribal Court bench.
Elile Adams is a Lummi single mother who Dodge had arrested and jailed on July 30, 2019, after she failed to personally appear before him that month for the nineteenth time in the last two years. Her father George Adams, a Nooksack elder, was brutalized by three Nooksack cops and cited into Dodge’s court for obstruction of justice after asking the police why they were at his home to arrest his daughter that day. Elile had never been arrested before.
The Adamses soon went to Whatcom County Superior Court against Dodge and to tribal news media, which quoted Elile online as saying: “Dodge has made my life a living nightmare.” Meanwhile, after Dodge postponed an August 2019 court appearance for Elile after he learned of a courthouse protest planned by various Nooksack and Lummi Indians, George wrote on Facebook: “Pretend Judge Ray Dodge cancelled ‘court’ today.”

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.
