Amid White Earth tribal power struggle, Winona LaDuke to seek leadership post


MAHNOMEN, Minn. -- White Earth Chairwoman Erma Vizenor has been censured -- essentially stripping her of her power to lead -- by a committee of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.

This decision does not mean she loses her position as White Earth chairwoman, but it clears the path for the White Earth Tribal Council to vote on whether to oust her.

The White Earth Tribal Council has 15 days to schedule a hearing to be held within 60 days that will call for the removal or recall of Vizenor.
