Demand Attorney General Jerry Brown Name a New Competent Board of Trustees for DQ-University
D-Q University was occupied in 1970, becoming the first inter-tribal collaboration which addressed the lack of structural unity among First Nations of North America. It opened its doors with a purpose to serve all indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere. D-Q is a place for international peace, wisdom and understanding. It is here that we can preserve and share with the World our cultures, traditions and heritage, without interference or dominance from the Western Colonial Establishment.
With 643 acres of land, D-Q U provides one of the few spaces in North America for all tribes to bring and share their ceremonies. Indigenous Perma culture (ancient traditional native farming), renewable energy such as bio-diesel fuels, solar technology, wind power, along with land and animal restoration are key components of the mission of D-Q University. Due to growing world wars, a black hole economy, and unprecedented environmental disasters, we as Natives, have taken initiative in confronting assimilation and absorption of Western policies.
Over the years D-Q U has been the victim of embezzlement, fraud, and abuse from the corrupted Board of Trustees while the youth bear the burden of consequences. Direct action must be taken against the Board of Trustees to be held accountable for their crimes. Since 2005, D-Q University’s Board of Trustees have failed to hold a structure that can deliver progressive results towards maintaining any place of education. They annually receive $52,000 from a land lease agreement from the Yolo County Board of Supervisor’s Chairman Duane Chamberlain. While serving as Board members, under their “leadership” the campus has now been condemned and is currently a fire hazard being overgrown with dry brush with no water or electricity.
Due to the fact that the members of the Board have proven their lack of knowledge, skills and abilities to run a university, as well as its long list of failing the school by losing its accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, spending endowment money meant for student scholarships, doing nothing to hire teachers and re-start classes, losing federal funding and not applying to get it back, and not securing student records, library holdings, and collections of the university, this Board has repeatedly demonstrated incompetence to the point of malfeasance. Individual board members have unlawfully exercised powers, committed fraud, abused the community and the students that the university was intended to serve, and misappropriated and converted funds donated for the use of the university to their own personal use.
We, the people, are asking Jerry Brown, Attorney General for the State of California, to dismiss the current D-QU Board of Trustees and appoint, with the support of the community, a new Board of Trustees, one that is properly educated and motivated to reopen D-Q U. We further request that Attorney General Brown act in support of the Quo Warranto Complaint filed in California Superior Court for Yolo County seeking redress in these matters.
We Encourage the Indigenous Community To Demand Attorney General Edmund G. Brown, Jr name a new competent Board of Trustees for D-Q University. Please Write & or Call Attorney General Edmund G. Brown, Jr and Voice Your Concern for the One & Only Tribal College in California DQ-University.
