Tribe seeks to boot 233 Saginaw Chippewa members


With the fresh approval of its appellate court, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe has reopened enrollment cases and notified 233 members – living and dead – that they now face disenrollment.

Attorney Paula Fisher, who has defended Tribal members facing removal in the past, said members have 30 days to request a hearing or face disenrollment.

The latest letters cap a lengthy legal battle in which the Tribe has sought to remove several families, including deceased ancestors, who trace their lineage to the original Tribal rolls through aunts, uncles and cousins and not through parents and grandparents.
