Caballero: Mackey’s statement

By
April 12, 2012 | 4 Comments

I, Kristen Mackey, was originally contacted by the actual Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians (Miwok Tribe) in February of 2006, because I am a licensed Real Estate Agent and they wanted me to provide information concerning the Shingle Springs Reservation.  I investigated the property, obtained title reports, reviewed Bureau of Indian Affairs Realty documents, including archived records from the San Bruno National Archives, State Senate Resolution publications, Indian Reorganization Act Records, LAFCO records, U.S. Federal census records and court documents. As I began to understand that our local Miwok Indians have had their name and therefore their identity and Federal Recognition usurped by a group named the Sacramento Verona Band of Homeless Indians, from Verona, Sutter County, CA., and while exercising my constitutional, first amendment rights, I spoke as a concerned citizen at The El Dorado Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) open public meeting on July 23, 2008, and explained the dire situation that the Miwok Tribe was experiencing. Because of my speaking to reveal the truth, I am currently one of the many persons being sued by the imposter group.

There are two questions that need to be asked of the Casino group. Are you Miwok Indians, and do you have Federal Identification from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to provide evidence of it? I personally witnessed in Federal Court a representative and Vice Chairman of the Casino group testifying that the Casino group answers no to these questions, and she admitted to the fact that the Casino group makes their own Tribal Identification, and that it is not issued by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. (Transcripts can be provided upon request).

Our local Miwok Indians can answer yes to both of these questions. They have official Federal Identification from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and it states that they are Miwok Indians. I have personally viewed the above named ID’s.

The true Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians is finally being heard after decades of their voices falling on deaf ears.

I make this statement, and I do so with fear, that I will be the target of continued persecution from the Casino group.

    This is starting to read like a novel except real people are involved and something is amiss, it will turn on the proper documentation, which appears, in my opinion, to favor the history of the historical tribe which has been in residence, I would guess, from the last ice age migration across the land bridge of the continents. This is as much a case of one for the Interior Dept. to involve itself in as I have ever seen if not the BIA and FBI investigators to hold a neutral court of inquiry of fact finding. What is not appropiate here is to expect citizens to match bank accounts with a casino tribe in pursuit of and defense of litigation over what appears to be one solid issue of fact to be decided. These issues should be combined into one case and nuisance actions should be dismissed by competent judicial action.

    as a realtor did you work on any transactions that you knew the buyer wouldn't be able to keep up on the payments?

    *knowing* the future is too high a hurdle...how about "reasonable expectation"? But that's a side issue, yes?
