Tribal Disenrollment's Historical Trauma to 21st Century Native Youth

So proud of my cousin, Cassie Whitten, who explains the effects of disenrollment.   Tribal Heritage is stripped away, segregation ensues.
YOU CAN help, by SHARING this video after watching.

Everyone had their own experiences and traumas and I do not want to offend anyone. I am simply speaking for me and my experience from being shunned and kicked out of my community, school, and cultural classes at AGE 7. I was a child that had every right to be going to school and learning from my people. This is my families land. It’s Paulina Hunters land. It’s my families land who are decedent(s) from her. Our families who are related to Paulina Hunter did not deserve this mistreatment, we are all from Pechanga. Everyone on this reservation knows who we are and that we belong here. It’s time to step up and make actual change, together. Do not be like the colonizers... that is not our people. This is not traditional.
Dr. John R. Johnson I want to thank you for helping my family. You are a blessing to us

Good job Cassie!

It’s sad to hear this and that it even happens. Our ancestors went through this when mission were created, and to see people doing it within their own families is scary. Sending prayers to you and your family.

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
