Particularly rich, in this letter from TASIN and CNIGA this passage:
“The population-based formula chosen by Treasury for its distribution of the initial $4.8 billion is particularly inequitable for California tribes because of the legacy of the genocide endured by California tribes,” the Indian nations write. “That history is the ugly backdrop to the small tribal populations that we see today in the state.”
After laughing from this, I had to think, are they blind? It's like a kid who kills his parents and tries to go free because he's an orphan...
Some of these tribes in CA have decimated their own populations!
Pechanga: 20% +
yes, there's more, you can read about tribal disenrollments and learn about the corruption, abuse and shameful behavior.
We wrote a letter to the feds about how each tribe should be looked at individually
TASIN, who trampled on another tribe's sovereignty, while at a meeting at the Pechanga Resort & Casino, a disenrolling tribe, was instrumental in crafting the letter.
CNIGA as well, who opposed Indian Civil Rights, remember?
KARMA IS A BITCH
