Caballero: Mackey’s statement

By April 12, 2012

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.
