CALIFORNIA'S TRIBAL NEWSPAPER
Indian Reservations: Northern | Central | Southern

Serving Tribal Governments Across the Nation!

"The American Indian Reporter" (AIR) was originally designed to serve American Indian tribal members in lower California. Our newspaper continues to be the only tribal-produced newspaper dedicated to serving the 31 Indian reservations located in Southern California with today's local and national top breaking news in Indian country, for OP-ED, community-based feature stories and niche advertising.

BREAKING AMERICAN INDIAN NEWS SOURCE

We are currently expanding our news coverage nationally to include central and northern California, as well as the 562 Native American tribes in the United States through our network of tribal websites and electronic delivery options.

VOTE NO ON PROP 15 PROPERTY TAX:

1. Prop 15 is a MASSIVE $11.5 billion-a-year property TAX HIKE - the largest property tax increase in California’s history.

2. Those pushing to pass Prop 15 ADMIT HOMEOWNERS ARE NEXT - they really want a complete repeal of Prop 13’s property tax protections for homeowners.

3. Prop 15 will INCREASE THE COST OF LIVING for every family by $960/YEAR - we’ll all be paying more for gas, food, utilities, and healthcare.

4. Prop 15 will hit small businesses hard with HIGHER RENTS and property tax bills - local restaurants, gyms, daycare centers and barber shops that are already struggling to survive.

Prop 15's $11.5 BILLION-A-YEAR PRICE TAG is on the ballot at the wrong time - our worst recession isn't the time for the biggest property tax hike in state history.

A Vote for Biden-Harris
Is a Vote for The Transformation of America to a Socialist Country:

PLEASE READ THE FULL FRONT PAGE OP-ED

You want to pay more taxes You want to close churches You want to limit free speech You want to abolish gun rights You want a “One-World-Order” You don’t support home ownership You want to make Christianity illegal You want to limit the activities of Christianity You want replace God with Big Government You want the Government to provide for all you needs. You support killing the unborn, even minutes before birth You want Indian Reservations to be open to all people in need You want all people to be equal including the American Indians? You want the Government to take private property in the suburbs to build multi-housing in single family home neighborhoods (Look at California State “Zoning Laws” in the suburbs by Harris) You want the Socialist to rewrite the U.S. Constitution to be more in line with a collective ideology such as the Marxist ideology. You want to do away with the police and replace it with more friendly community based law and or- der council. You want do away with pedophile laws because they discriminate against gays. Like the decimaliza- tion of pedophile in California (SB 145) You want the “New Green Deal” to create 700,000 new Government jobs and kill 10 million cur- rent jobs in oil, gas, coal, automobile manufacturing, and the list is endless. You support Government “Re-Education Centers” for people that resist the transformation of the United States of American to a Socialist Country. You support the voiding of all Tribal Treaties and the Government’s political relationship with the American Indian Tribes and Alaskan Natives. I understand that many of you believe I’m full of unprocessed sewage, but I speak the truth and the truth will keep you free of you accept it and act on it. However, all you need to do is look at what is happening in many of the Socialist Democratic run state and cities, total chaos!

Stop Tribal Disenrollment: Indian Country simply cannot afford any additional trauma

“Disenrollment is a hold-over from a foreign government’s 'final solution' attempt once used to rid the land of Indians.”

Source: Indian Country Today; by Deron Marquez, PhD, he is the Co-Founder of the Tribal Administration Certificate Program at Claremont Graduate University and former Chairman of San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.

In western governments, sovereignty is derived from the people; part of an individual’s sovereignty is surrendered to the “order” via a social contract theory. In most instances, the contract is entered at birth or through some other legal means of citizenship admittance. A citizen is rarely divested of those rights and any divestment of citizenship requires heightened proof and due process.

In Indian Country, an individual typically has to petition for citizenship (usually at birth and sometimes later in life) and it’s not an automatic process. Once “enrolled” into the tribe, a set of rights and duties falls upon the individual as defined by their tribal nation. Too many Indians have upheld these obligations over the course of many years, only to be told they no longer belong to their tribal community... READ THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TRIBAL NEWS ARTICLE
