Opinion: Calif. tribes disenrolling more people
Thursday, April 1, 2004

"As Indian casinos prosper, tribal members are becoming greedier. Laura Wass, a spokeswoman for the American Indian Movement, said that hundreds of California Indians have been ejected from their tribes in recent years, many from tribes that run casinos, and that about 2,000 more are facing ejection.

In the few years that casinos have been allowed in the state, five of the San Diego County tribes, including three that operate casinos, have seen their membership decrease, according to the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Six tribes that do not operate casinos have had their memberships increase."
