FEATURED TRIBAL STORIES:

American Indians Second Class Citizens by Choice

By Ernie C. Salgado, Jr. (Soboba tribe)

told myself not to write this article but sometimes I just can’t help myself. I guess I’m like the bug in the movie “Bugs Life” when he was told don’t look at the lights and as he looked at the light he said “I can’t help it.” So since I can’t help myself I am going to expose this can of worms.

EDITOR IN CHIEF

What is pathetic is that non-American citizens seem to get more protections from the Constitution of the United State of America than the American Indian tribal people. In fact just the other day the Federal Court judge in Hawaii ruled that the Trump travel ban was not legal because it violated the Civil Rights of the non-citizens. And if that’s not bad enough the Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. forces in combat fighting the Islamic extremist must read them their Miranda Rights.

Sure the United States Congress passed the Indian Civil Rights Act in 1968 (H.R. 2516) stating “The Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968 (ICRA) applies to the Indian tribes of the United States and makes many, but not all, of the guarantees of the Bill of Rights applicable within the tribes. The legislation also addressed the crises of domestic violence that pledge the American Indian community.

The Act appears today in Title 25, sections 1301 to 1303 of the United States Code. The “and makes many, but not all,” are troublesome and were not defied The US Supreme Court had made clear that tribal internal affairs concerning tribal members' individual rights were not covered by the Fifth Amendment to the US constitution. However, the tribes were ultimately subjected to the power of Congress and the Constitution... READ MORE.

MILITARY FAMILY NOTES

Frank Red Bow Basquez-Gallerito, the 19-year-old son of Mia and Frank Bow Basquez-Gallerito, is scheduled to complete his Naval basic military training (boot camp) around the middle of May 2017.

The young recruit is undergoing his basic training at the Great Lakes Naval Station in Illinois.

Frank enlisted in the United State Navy on September 14, 2016. He took the oath of military service at the Military Entrance Processing Station in San Diego. He enlisted for eight-years of active duty and three-years of reserve service time. When asked why he enlisted for eight-years of active duty as apposed to the normal four-years.

He reported for active duty at the U.S. Naval Base in San Diego on March 16, 2017. Although he enlisted in September 2016 his date for re-porting for active duty was delayed by the Navy since he was enrolled with the Southern California EMS Training institute in Murrieta.

He will complete his basic training around the middle of May 2017 at the Great Lakes Naval Station in Illinois adjacent to Waukegan, IL on the north side of Chicago.

Upon completion of his eight-weeks of basic training he will begin his Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) training as a certified electrician.

Frank graduated from San Jacinto High School on June 9, 2016. During his four-years of high school he participated in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) pro-gram.

Frank is the middle child of five siblings. He spend the first 15-years of his life on the Mescalero Apache Indian Reservation in New Mexico where he is an enrolled tribal member. The Mescalero Apache reservation is also the home of many of the blood relatives of the famous Apache warrior, Geronimo.

However, he has deep family roots with the Soboba Indian Reservation in Southern California.

The Basquez-Gallerito family moved to the Soboba reservation in 2012. However, his mother, Mia, said she made sure they came home every summer.

The Birth of the California Indian Education Center Act and the California Indian Health Act, 1973 and 1974

By Andy Anderson (submitted by Ernie Salgado, Soboba)

The Birth of the California Indian Education Center Act and the California Indian Health Act, 1973 and 1974.

On New Year’s Eve 2008 my daughter, Culien, went go with Annette and me to see the movie, "Milk."  The movie focus is on Harvey Milk the skilled gay rights activist culminating with the assassination of Milk and Mayor George Moscone by Dan White, an ex-San Francisco Supervisor.

I never knew or even met Harvey Milk.  It was not my cause, Indian rights were.  I did know George Moscone as he was the key California Senator to agree to advocate for Indians at a time where finding an Indian legislative champion in California was nearly impossible.

The movie "Milk" has prompted me to write up the story on how Joe Carrillo, Dan Bomberry and I were able to get two state Indian laws passed, the first laws in the nation to use state general tax funds for the benefits of American Indians.

NATA — Joe Carrillo, Dan Bomberry, Andy Anderson

Joe Carrillo, Dan Bomberry and I formed the non-profit NATA Institute in 1972 to advocate for Indian health, education and land rights and to train community organizers towards those goals.

NATA stood for Native American Training Associates and NATA quickly became the radical cutting edge Indian organization in California.  With success also came enemies including many envious wantabee Indian leaders who mad-mouthed NATA.  They derisively called it the Mexican, Canadian Indian and a white guy organization ...

LETTERS TO THE INDIAN COMMUNITY

President-elect Trump’s Native American Coalition

by Ernie C. Salgado, Jr., Soboba Indian Reservation

TRUMPPresident-elect Donald J. Trump announced the formation of his Native American Coalition. These women and men are grassroots leaders and tribal elected officials who engage on relevant issues with the Native American tribal community.

The Chair of the Native American Coalition, U.S. Representative (R-OK) and tribal member of the Cherokee Nation, Markwayne Mullin, had this to say:

"The daily flood of new federal regulations keep Indian Country from becoming self-sufficient. Local tribal decisions, not federal bureaucrats, are the best way to improve our communities. As both an enrolled member of Cherokee Nation and a Member of Congress, I will stand with Donald Trump in supporting tribal sovereignty and reining in federal over-regulation."

Honorary Chair Fleming Begaye, Sr., one of America's revered Navajo Code Talkers, said, “Native Americans need a federal government that gets out of the way of small business. As an independent and a successful small businessman, I crossed the line this week and voted for Mr. Trump.”... READ MORE.
