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.

How To Contact YOUR Senators and other Representatives: VOICE YOUR OPINION

Too much is going on to stay silent, whether it's a native issue of tribal disenrollment, or violations of civil and human rights at our borders.  GET INVOLVED. 


Our elected representatives in Sacramento and in Washington D.C. need to be made aware of this situation. Letters, phone calls and faxes are the most effective - emails just get lost

The point is that they are elected to address our concerns, if they hear from enough people, they will become aware. We are the voters - we have the power --
Yes this may cost a few stamps and long distance phone calls --

Another option is to find and join one of your local Democratic clubs and put the issue to them, and ask if they will take action.

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.
