Politicians and tribal leaders turn a blind eye to the abuse of disenrollment, which perpetuates the historical trauma of Native Americans. HOW HARD IS IT TO SAY THIS?
"As a leader of this community, I strongly denounce the practice of disenrollment. It goes against everything our ancestors fought for and undermines the very foundation of our tribal sovereignty."
OR COME OUT TO DESCRIBE THIS?
"Disenrollment is a painful and divisive practice that only serves to tear our communities apart. We must come together to find a better way to resolve our differences and build a stronger, more inclusive future for all members of our tribe."
OR TO STAND UP FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL?
"No one should be stripped of their tribal citizenship and all the rights that come with it based on flimsy or non-existent evidence. We must uphold the principles of due process and fairness for all members of our community."
OR TO REMIND ALL IT's DAMAGING to ELDERS
"The elders in our community are the keepers of our culture and traditions, and we must honor and respect them. Disenrollment only compounds the historical trauma our people have faced and perpetuates the very injustices we have fought to overcome."
AND TO BE PROUD TO STAND UP for ALL?
"As a leader, it is my duty to stand up for what is right and just. Disenrollment is a violation of the basic human rights of our tribal members, and we must put an end to it once and for all."
