    California Casino Tribes Expel Dozens Of Members


    SAN FRANCISCO -- Two casino-owning tribes in California have thinned their membership ranks over the last several months, cutting off scores of people from a share of casino profits and other benefits of tribal membership.

    Officials with The Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians and the Pala Band of Mission Indians say the former members' ancestral blood lines disqualified them.
    Critics, however, have a different explanation: greed.

    They accuse tribal officials of trying to increase their share of profits from their casinos, a charge that tribal officials vehemently deny.

    There is no civil right to DNA.

    They are either of the blood or not.
