Tribal Court Upholds Ruling To Disenroll Grand Ronde Members
A tribal court Tuesday upheld a decision to kick out 86 members from the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde.
“Being disenrolled is like being kicked in the teeth,” said Mia Prickett, a former tribal member who lives in Portland. “To have it stripped away like this is just gut-wrenching. It’s completely throwing away our family history, and what we sacrificed for all of our tribe.”
