Indigenous people within the United States have endured many obsticles against them. Sustemic poverty, encroached human & Soverign rights, and horrible Genocide to name just a few.

With such enormous challenges against our people, why then would some within our communities seek to bring more pain to ourselves? In this episode of Native Opinion, we discuss the subject of self-destruction from within… Tribal Disenrollment.

Michelle Hammock is one of 74 members who, without due process, were disenrolled from Hopland Band of Pomo Indians on January 15, 2016. Since that day, Michelle has been fighting the injustice of irresponsible tribal sovereignty.
