The 9-year-old girl couldn’t understand.
How could anyone tell her she was no longer Modoc? And if she was no longer Modoc, what was she?

Visual Aid for The Number of DISENROLLED in Indian Country, You'd need a Train 3 miles long to hold JUST the LIVING

We use the number 11,000 for the disenrolled in Indian Country.  In trying to make the impression with math, I used this metric:  An Amtrak rail car can hold roughly 65 passengers and is 85 feet long.

To hold all disenrolled, the train would have to have 169 passenger cars that are 85 feet long and with the needed engines, it would be THREE MILES LONG.  And, that would NOT include our deceased ancestors that were ALSO stripped of their citizenship...some a CENTURY after they died.

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

Emilio Reyes on U.S. Federal Censuses Inaccuracies. BIA Caught Allowing it

Emilio Reyes, founder of Stop Tribal Genocide posted this on Facebook earlier.  Remember when he exposed the Bureau of Indian Affairs wrongdoing in regards to Census Tampering?

Stop Tribal Genocide

Census enumerators visited numerous homes over large areas. Simple human error certainly occurred. Sometimes individuals who answered the census questions may have been mistaken regarding certain details about their family members. Due to this, we cannot fully rely on the information provided on federal censuses. Before the 20th century it was not important. In such cases, if no one was available, the census enumerator will provide the information for the individual. Census information can also be inaccurate because of the people falsely adjusting the census. That is known as “padding the totes.” (Arlene Eakle, Ph.D.)
The object of padding the totes was most often to manipulate things to achieve statehood or other political goals. Adjusting the census for political reasons was not uncommon. (Minnesota 1857 census) Jurisdictions facing increased taxes might also understate their populations to keep overall per capita taxes lower.

Redding Rancheria Chairman PRAYS on Martin Luther King Day

Object is larger than it appears
A civil rights VIOLATOR prays and walks in memory of a man who stood for civil rights. Hypocrite, thy name is Jack Potter.Redding Rancheria Tribal Chair Jack Potter was one of several spiritual leaders who offered a prayer before the march in Redding on Martin Luther King day.  Is it like a guy who kills his parents then, prays because he's an orphan?

Jack Potter helped disenroll the family of the first tribal chairman Bob Foreman..but NOT until AFTER they forced the Foreman family to desecrate their ancestor for DNA. YES digging up her remains for DNA, and the NOT ACCEPTING the findings, because you know, 99.8% wasn't conclusive enough. 


Remember he was at STANDING ROCK
Praying for Sioux ancestors after desecrating his own tribal kin?

Falmouth Institute Getting Another Look for their Disenrollment Seminars

We know that many tribes have attended the Falmouth Institutes seminars which include HOW to disenroll.  In fact, we know that Pechanga sent enrollment committee members. Even Mark Macarro's cousin had a representative there as speaker
No photo description available.

This past week, we've seen their name again, like it's new news. it's not.  Dr. David Willkins wrote about Falmouth in 2014 along with other for-profit institutions.  I commented about them in 2017 Native America Calling story. But, we must keep re-telling these stories, so that more people can learn, and fewer people can say, we didn't know.

Indian gaming has brought these groups forward, they used Falmouth in 2006.
The Eastern Band of Cherokee used them for an enrollment audit. Pechanga wouldn't because they knew the evidence that Paulina Hunter was Pechanga was OVERWHELMING and would destroy their narrative. If the tribe wanted the real story, and Falmouth was any good, the number of people removed would be staggering.

POWERFUL Picture of Disenrollment at Wilton Rancheria. BIA Subterfuge

As we come upon the #stopdisenrollment visual advocacy event Feb. 10 2020, this picture of historical families of the Wilton Rancheria encapsulates the effects of disenrollment.   Those on the left side are now disenrolled, those on the right including lineal descendants are still enrolled.  Read below how BIA Director Amy Dutschke is ...involved.

Here's a new picture... all disenrolled

Judge Rules DOI must Reevaluate Rule on Tribal Recognition

Image result for free images for scales of justice

A federal judge declined on Friday to order the government to allow the Chinook Indian Nation to reapply for federal recognition, but he did toss out the Department of Interior’s decision to ban such second tries and told the department to reevaluate the rule.  Read Chinook Tribe Seeks Recognition

The Chinook have lived at the mouth of the Columbia River since time immemorial, but they don’t have a reservation on their historical land. They don’t have the health clinics or hunting and fishing rights that recognized tribes have. Tribal recognition could provide a land base and bring resources they need.

Pala's Robert Smith Eradicates CUPENO INDIANS Who Get NO JUSTICE from their 1903 Trail of Tears

ACEE AGOYO of INDIANZ has the FULL STORY   Robert Smith of Pala eradicated the Cupeno Indians...but only from the Pala band via disenrollment.  They are FIGHTING BACK.

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."

BACKGROUND for PALA Disenrollment/Injustice

Congress' Indian Committee, House Resources, BIA ignore 14 years of Pechanga Abuse of Native Americans

Image result for Disenrollment images

That's 14 years that Hunter descendants have been stripped of their tribal citizenship, due to unconstitutional actions by the corrupt Pechanga Tribal Council.

And collusion with enrollment committee members, including Bobbi LeMere (who, in a quid pro quo, got her sisters enrolled in the tribe, even though scores of others were in the moratorium  READ Corruption Exposed… )  Ruth Masiel, matriarch of the crime family and mother of council member Andrew Masiel Sr. and Frances Miranda, who two years before, had seen to it that her OWN FAMILY members, the descendent of Manuela Miranda were also stripped of their citizenship.  Irhene Scearce received justice in death.

Iran's Sacred Sites Threatened, MEDIA EXPLODES, Native Sites Harmed, Media Silent

Excellent piece from the New Republic.  Democrats have hollered about Trump threatening Iran's cultural sites, yet silent when it happens here.

Chaco Canyon. The Black HillsBears Ears. Gaylor Ranch. Standing Rock. Mauna Kea. Oak Flat. America, through its founding to its present, has stretched its borders and lined its pockets by desecrating Native American sacred and cultural sites and the land they sat on. A failure to reckon with this history would be a failure to properly contextualize the president’s current threats and America’s founding ethos of capitalist imperialism.

Accused Pechanga Casino Murderers Kimesha Williams and Candace Townsel Get HIGH PRICED Attorneys

UPDATE: According to Riverside County records, Kimesha Williams will be back in court 12/11/2020

The women accused of fatally injuring an 84-year-old Long Beach woman on Aug. 31 at Pechanga Resort Casino are represented by prominent lawyers — one of whom works for two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kawhi Leonard.

They are a New York attorney who has advocated for sports stars in civil and disciplinary matters and defendants in white-collar crime cases, a Riverside criminal defense lawyer regarded as one of the best in the county and a criminal defense attorney who has tried nine death penalty cases.

Kimesha Monae Williams, 35, and Candace Tai Townsel, 39, have been charged with murder, robbery and cruelty to an elder. Afaf Assad was found with a broken skull in a bathroom at the Pechanga casino near Temecula on Aug. 31 and died Sept. 4.  The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said casino video showed Williams and Townsel following Assad into the bathroom. (Williams had been banned from Pechanga in 2015 after a theft.) After the defendants emerged, Assad’s purse was missing, said a sworn statement written to obtain an arrest warrant.

The robbery makes the defendants eligible for the death penalty if convicted. District Attorney Mike Hestrin has not decided whether to pursue that punishment, spokesman John Hall said. The women, both residents of Moreno Valley, were due back in Superior Court in French Valley on Wednesday, Jan. 8, for a status hearing. They have pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Pretendians Benefitting From Federal Contracts

LATimes has another story about fake Indian money grubbers.  Remember the fake Elizabeth Warren, and Andrea Smith?

Companies set up by members of a self-described and state-recognized Creek Indian tribe in Alabama have received more than $240 million in federal minority-business contracts, despite a determination by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs that there is no credible evidence the group has Native American ancestry, a Los Angeles Times investigation has found.

Federal contracts worth an additional $273 million have gone to two companies run by a member of a different Native American group in Alabama with no federal recognition as a tribe.

The ability of company owners with questionable Native American identity to obtain more than half a billion dollars in taxpayer funded minority-business contracts reflects a nationwide failure by agencies overseeing programs set up decades ago to help socially and economically disadvantaged minority groups.

Including the Alabama outlays, The Times has found more than $800 million in federal contracts awarded to companies whose owners made unsubstantiated claims to be Native American, although the total is almost certainly higher. The contracts were for construction, computing and other projects in 27 states, including California.  Read the full story at the LATIMES link above
