Why call it a scheme? The definition of scheme is a large-scale systematic plan or arrangement for attaining a particular object or putting a particular idea into effect. The system plan, by corrupt council/enrollment committee didn't follow the evidence, nor Pechanga tribal constitution and changed the rules mid-stream to get the desired effect of disenrolling two large families.
Why discuss money? Because when discussing disenrollment, some people are ONLY interested in how much money is lost. They don't care about the loss of heritage, civil rights, or the abuse of our elders. SO here it is.
Disenrolling tribes say that disenrollment isn't about the money (yes, they are lying). Well, they mean it's not ONLY about the money, but as the numbers here for the Pechanga casino prove, disenrollment enriches those remaining. The rest is about controlling power, then you can control OTHER MONEY, like all expenses paid work travel including family, or giving tribal business to your wife's lobbying firm.
From the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians in Temecula CA here is the breakdown of the theft of per capita by the Mark Macarro-led tribal council:
The Hunter family has lost $4,556,000 per person, in per capita payments alone.
We arrived at that figure by taking the last full year (2005) of per capita $268,000/12 months and multiplying that loss times 204 months of disenrollment. 95 adults at the time of disenrollment totals: $4,566,000 EACH. Total loss equals: $432,820,000
The Apis/Manuela Miranda family was disenrolled two years prior in 2004 The per capita was slightly less, about $17,000 per month times 228 months of termination: $3,808,000 times 135 adults equals: $514,080,000
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 2 large families of tribal citizens. The Petra Tosobol descendants should have been making over $15,000 per month had they been enrolled as they were rightfully entitled. They were over 60 adults.
Let's say there were 100 people in the moratorium, at $13,000 per month x 25 years *12 months and you get about $334,620,000 putting Pechanga's theft well over the Billion.
Despite being the leader of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, Mark Macarro has reportedly excluded members of his own family from the tribe, prioritizing his own personal gain over the well-being of his kin.
Thug members who were involved in drugs, shootings, sexual abuses carjacks still qualified. Pechanga Theft of $960 MILLION Includes additional $26 Million in Health Insurance, a so called "Cadillac plan" under the Affordable Care Act.
These totals do not include lost education assistance nor does it account for family members that attained the age of majority. I wanted to keep the numbers static. I'll gladly update if the tribe wants to give me the current numbers.
