Northern Cheyenne threaten takeover of tribal offices


LAME DEER, Mont. –– Northern Cheyenne activists recently obtained a copy of Tribal Council Resolution (DOI-028-2015) detailing a settlement agreement between the Northern Cheyenne Tribe and the St. Labre Indian School in Ashland, reached in December, 2014. That added fuel to simmering community complaints and unrest related to the settlement.

Heretofore, the Tribal Council had not released the details of that controversial settlement. In keeping with section J, the Tribe agrees to keep the terms of settlement confidential other than to inform its members, and to not publicize the agreement, including to the media. However, since then, tribal officials have not informed the tribal community about the settlement in any organized manner, specifically refusing comment to the media.
