The 5th #stopdisenrollment visual advocacy event for 2020 was a success in many measures.
The Stop Disenrollment Facebook page reports reports over 62,000 interactions of FB, including pictures, shares, likes and comments. It's a powerful visual and one I hope could be the last one.
This blog has seen the benefit on many visits. The event created an opportunity to send emails to BIA and congressional staff. I'm able to see many who check in.
Native America Calling had a show on tribal disenrollment with the estimable Dr. David Wilkins and Attorney Gabriel Galanda leading the discussion. I was able to get a call in around the 21:30 mark.
This has led to other opportunities to get the word on disenrollment and it's theft of our heritage out to many more people. HAVE YOU shared on social media? Using the hashtag #stopdisenrollment helps others find the information. We must work harder in getting the stories of disenrollment out. Otherwise, how will people know?
You will hear sovereignty often. Sovereignty, without accountability leads to nations like South Africa, which ran an apartheid nation, like some tribe's like my own, The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, from Temecula. My family has to come in a separate entrance to the homes they had since last century.
It also present the opportunity to call out the so-called Native Advocacy groups like the NCAI (National Congress of American Indians) and NARF (Native American Rights Fund) neither of which has done a DAMN THING for the over 11,000 living Native Americans who have lost all their tribal rights.
SPEAK OUT, SHARE POSTS on SOCIAL MEDIA. This issue is NOT a one day issue. THANK you to all that participated. Please KEEP HELPING those that BELONG to the Tribes they were born to, return. FIGHT back... they don't like it
