So What they get rich , and dont share among thier own , only because very few are left,, leave them be ,, it will catch up to them in the end,, so many that live on the res. or not true Indians any way,, I lived there in the valley in the late 70/s the cops hated them ,, yes they did ,, Shame on them ,,( cops)
But then again ,, I know some great Indians that still live on the res, some has made it out of the drugs etc, some not ,, but hey, that is thier problem,, Mafia Yes ,, So why dont the same cops go after the Mafia?? Too many Mormans live in Solvang ,, and they can not beat up on them like the past ,, Ha ha ha ha ,, They gave up so much of the land and who they are because,, of the white people ruling over them ,, They were here first. not the (rich) ones ,, I hope they become a very powerfull Mafia ,, to get rid of all the bad rich white trash ,, I love the Valley ,, my heart and soul has been there a long time,, Let them be,, I am so happy, that finaly the
true Indians have something,( even if only 1/4 bred) That the white vikings,Mormans, etc took away from them along time ago, IT WAS their land ,, and we TOOK it FROM THEM,, God give it , and God take it ,, So Shut up you winnie babies let them be ,,

Hey Yellow Pis, What planet are you living on? You've got some pretty bad talking points to work with. Obviously, You've had a few dealings with the cops. Most convicts like yourself usually have a problem with law and order. I guess you're a true indian? You bum!

Tell the Indian Mafia to hit the road! Throw the politians who support the Indian Mafia out of office!
If you doubt the need for this action, talk to the people who live in Solvang and Santa Inez!
Mafia? Where do you get calling them that? They give back to the community more than any white man like you or me ever have. They are people who have not forgot where they have come from, all the way to chief Armenta. Some still collect the per capita checks and live in small houses on the reservation. How is that mafia? I don't see them killing anyone, they give us jobs, something we would never give them. They give back to the community, they help build people up and give them opportunities to succeed something they never had. To all these people making judgements of the tribe look at the facts, look at where they have come from, look at what they are doing to the community it is nothing but positive. Last, for you who say "I have never seen an Indian in Santa Ynez" maybe they would still look like indians if we did not force religion, slavery and our way of life upon them!

Do they change the flavor of the KoolAid regularly? "They give back to the community, they help build people up and give them opportunities to succeed something they never had." Really? What about their own kind first?
I really doubt your're an employee. More like a tribal mouthpiece! You guys and your talking points! Can't you come up with something a little better? I would think that a real tribe would share with all the tribe instead a few greedy ones refusing to cut the rest in. Just like the phony so-called ceremonies where they harp about how we're all one people and all one tribe. Ha! I bet those real indians buried out in the countryside would be real proud of these fakes! These want to be indians ought to be ashamed of themselves. Now lets hear some more talking points!

How can someone say they don't see any Indians around anywhere! Indians don't have a special look to them, that is stereotyping! You may have even spoken to a "Native American" and would know it unless they told you they were native. Think before you speak.

I really like it around there, that lil town Guadelupe is nice. Lompoc is great, even in big ol' Santa Maria is nice. Around the Casino is nice too. But you know, I didn't see any Indians around anywhere.
