|Per Capita Theft is REAL|
In a recent conversation with an ABC News journalist for an upcoming segment, the subject of per capita came up as it always does.
Many tribes that disenroll their relatives will utter the phrase "It's NOT about the Money" when disenrolling some members.
Well, it's not ONLY about money, disenrollment also about POWER, but the money can be STAGGERING as well

The Paulina Hunter family has lost $4,243,300 per person, in per capita payments alone since the 2006 termination. We arrived at this figure by taking the last full year of per capita $268,000/12 months and multiplying that loss times 190 months of disenrollment. We had 95 adults at the time of disenrollment which equals: $398,887,000 This number does NOT include the growth of each family
The Apis/Manuela Miranda family was disenrolled two years prior to us in 2004. The per capita was slightly less at the time of their disenrollment, at about $17,000 per month times 214 months of termination: $3,638,000 times the 135 adults stripped of their tribal citizenship equals: $491,130,000
Moratorium People NEVER shared in what was rightfully theirs. The per capita went up to $360,000 per year for those remaining after elimination of 25% of Pechanga’s tribal citizens. Per capita is not static, as it depends on how well casinos are doing.
The disenrollment investigations for both families began after Apis/Hunter descendants on the enrollment committee found irregularities in the handling of membership applications of the
Petra Tosobol descendants. The greedy CPP forces didn't want them to have a rightful share of tribal profits.
So, still don't think it's "about the money"? Two families EXCLUDED for trying to do the right thing and make sure the Tosobol descendants, UNRELATED to US, but related to Munoa Clan were INCLUDED. The Munoas didn't help their own relations.
