Tribal members gathered to protest a cancelled recall vote against a tribal council member

Meanwhile on Spirit Lake, tribal members gathered Friday to protest a cancelled recall vote against a tribal council member. Tribal members gathered in Saint Michael, where a vote was originally scheduled to determine the fate of tribal council member Madrell Lewis. A recall vote on Monday ended in a tie. Tribal Chairman Russ McDonald originally scheduled a re-vote for Friday morning, before cancelling it on Wednesday. Both sides cite the Spirit Lake constitution to prove their point. McDonald says since a majority didn't vote to recall Lewis, she will stay on office. Recall supporters say he went back on his word and isn't listening to the people.
