Weekend workshop explores origins of tribal disenrollment

SANTA ROSA – A special weekend lecture will look at a problem plaguing Indian Country today – the issue of disenrollment.

The California Indian Museum and Cultural Center's Tillie Hardwick Lecture Series will present “The Origins of Tribal Disenrollment” from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 28. The museum is located at 5250 Aero Drive, Santa Rosa.

Dozens of members of the Robinson Rancheria Band of Pomo were disenrolled last December, as Lake County News has reported. The Elem Colony also has disenrolled members.

Thousands of Indians across California and many more across the nation have been subject to the growing practice, according to the American Indian Rights and Resources Organization and the American Indian Movement.

For those who have ever wondered about the nature of tribal disenrollment issues, the Saturday lecture may answer a host of questions.

What is the origin of tribal disenrollment ? Are there jurisdictional parameters? Why is it a growing issue for tribes throughout California and the nation? What are the options for individuals who are disenrolled? Do tribal governments have an obligation to provide civil rights protections and due process to persons undergoing disenrollment? These and other important issues will be probed in
this lecture.

The event should be enlightening for Indian and non-Indians alike.

Admission to the public is free.

For more information call the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center, 579-3004.
