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!

Pechanga Descendant

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
