Off TOPIC for this post, but, my longtime friend's son Bubby Rossman, a picher makes and unassisted double play. PLEASE watch and share with your sports minded friends

We are working on a post about the trauma that the Redding Rancheria cause the Foreman Family when they forced them to exhume their ancestors, but look at what we found on their Twitter page, the Redding Rancheria states:
The Redding Rancheria Tribal Government has been active in the #notyourmascot movement #proudtoplayourpart #shastacounty pic.twitter.com/n8RCDdZ63Q

So they are proud to stand with the #notyourmascot issue, but silent on the #stopdisenrollment issue. They choose the low hanging fruit of sport team nicknames hoping to avoid the spotlight we've shone on them for a dozen years now.
IF they were really concerned about the harm to Native youth, they would look WITHIN their own and bring their people home.
PISS off, Jack Potter Jr.
Native American tribes looking for Federal Recognition have to jump through MANY HOOPS and show mountains of PROOF to be federally recognized. The 35 page PDF is HERE but here is an example of what they need below.
Shouldn't tribes that disenroll their people have to show SOME proof that can be evaluated before US Indian affairs De-RECOGNIZES Natives?
a. Proposed Elimination of Current ‘‘Criterion (a)’’ and Requirement for External Observer as an Independent Criterion b. Proposed Criterion (a), Requiring Narrative of Pre-1900 Existence
|Former Senator Barbara Boxer|
Earlier today former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland. The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured." We wish the elderly former Senator a speedy recovery, something so many of our elders are denied.

There is NO pathway for redress at this commission. People will make comments but should their comments be...document, refer to other group external to our group.
The Pechanga leader has a point. But this commission on Truth and Healing is exactly what thousands of aggrieved Indians need. to be heard, whether non federally recognized, or those disenrolled, some without due process.
WE WISHED HE WOULD Have Stood UP AGAINST the OPPRTESSION of PECHANGA RESORT CASINO Tribe, which runs and apartheid/segregation reservation in Temecula

We need to stand up, step up. But if you don't understand what's going on, then you need to wake the f— up," PITBULL Also he said, This is about unity, not division. And bottom line, this is about taking action."
WE AGREE on the issue of Cuba and he hope he puts these thoughts into action by NEVER Performing at a Tribal Casino that has disenrolled their own members. He performed at Pechanga Resort Casino July 21. So does he REALLY care about human and civil rights? Or is it only CUBAN civil rights?
WE wrote about Castro when he died in 2016. We've also asked other performers NOT TO PERFORM, like Gabriel Iglesias Johnny Mathis Jill Scott We hope to have success, one of these day.
MEANWHILE, Pitbull, we will continue to stand with YOU against the oppressors of Cuba.
After a decade of pressure to end the mascotry targeted to Native Americans, the Cleveland GUARDIANS will be the new name for the Ohio baseball team
Cleveland’s Major League Baseball team is changing its name to Guardians, the franchise announced Friday, dropping the racially offensive name it has been known as for more than a century.
The name Guardians is a reference to well-known Art Deco statues located on the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge, which spans the Cuyahoga River and connects downtown Cleveland to the city’s trendy Ohio City neighborhood. Those statues are known as the “Guardians of Traffic.”
The franchise, which announced the name change in a tweet Friday morning, had long faced pressure from activists locally and nationally to ditch the name “Indians,” which critics said was racist.
The video announcing the name change did not say when it goes into effect. However, MLB.com reported that will happen for next season. The 2021 season is currently underway, with the Cleveland franchise in second place in the American League Central.
|MARK MACARRO HONEST?|
Creator, breath the fresh air of justice into the bodies of the many tribal leaders that have lost their way and harmed so many.
Walk closely beside us during our journey to healing and belonging that I know is possible through Your power alone.
Creator, help relieve the anxieties that perplex us, the despair that frightens us, and end the frustration that clouds our hearts and minds.
Help share your forgiveness in our memories and know your peace in our distress over the abuse of our elders and ancestors.
Creator, LEAD the leaders to the path of healing and justice and end the damage caused by greedy hearts.
Earliet this week, we pointed out how one faction of Tongva people get little respect from the Feds, the state and the courts. And here we get news from our Corona friends that another faction of Tongva People are honored by the City of Corona this week.
NO RESPECT AT ALL, and now, another indignity in a court case saying the Kizh Nation did not prove they sovereign rights?
The court docket shows this fact.
Here, the FAC alleges that KNRM “is a California, domestic stock corporation known as one of eleven non-federally tribal factions that claims Gabrieleno, Native American status.”
(FAC, ¶ 4.) Thus, the court finds that the question of sovereign immunity involves issues of proof that cannot be decided in this demurrer. Defendant (KN MR) points to the California Department of Industrial Relations’ order of dismissal in another matter, where it found that sovereign immunity applied to KNRM. (RJN, Exh. 2.) OP:
the KNRM HAD SUBMITTED a document where they alleged tribal immunity. However, the Court did not believed they met their burden in showing tribal under federal law.
However, while the court can take judicial notice the official acts of a government agency, the court cannot take judicial notice of the truth of the matters asserted therein
It's difficult to get all a federally recognized tribe gets in our courts and our Congresses, both state and federal. The Juaneno know this. It's time for the factions to get together and settle these issues.

Disenrolled are ignored again
For many years, the descendants of the original people of what is now Orange County have fought for a sliver of land dedicated to their history and traditions.
Tribal leaders have said that the park could be an important tool for educating the public and a vital gathering place for tribal members, where they could perform important ancient rituals. Some tribal members have been waiting for a piece of dedicated land like the park for decades.
After several delays, the Putuidem Village in San Juan Capistrano is expected to be completed by mid-August. The humble 1.5-acre passive park will include an amphitheater with boulders and log seats, a trail and depictions of the Juaneño way of life, including ramadas, kiichas (a thatch home) and manos (a ground stone tool). The surrounding areas of the park have native plant habitat.
“We just don’t want to be forgotten,” said Adelia Sandoval, spiritual leader of the Juaneño Band of Mission Indians. “It was a viable, beautiful thing that was going on here. The people living here, they kept everything in balance.”
The sacred sites and lands of the Acjachemen descendants, whose history traces thousands of years, have been plundered, desecrated and devoured by development. They became known as the Juaneños after Spanish colonialists built Mission San Juan Capistrano in 1776. Today, there are about 1,900 tribal members.
The Putuidem Village was seen as a long-sought tribal victory when the San Juan Capistrano City Council first approved the educational park in 2016. The Northwest Open Space, a 65-acre natural area near the 5 Freeway where the park is being built, is considered one of the first Native American settlements in what became Orange County.
But in ensuing years, the city delayed the project, and tribal leadership questioned whether it would ever be completed.
