Citing opposition, White Earth chair Vizenor resigns


WHITE EARTH, Minn. – Erma Vizenor said fierce political opposition left her with "no option" but to resign Wednesday as leader of the White Earth Nation.

Vizenor's resignation came amid backlash for her support of a constitution that would bring major, controversial changes to the way White Earth is governed and how its membership is determined.

An overwhelming majority of White Earth voters approved the constitution in a 2013 vote, but the document was eroded after three opponents of the constitution swept the White Earth Tribal Council in a close 2014 election.
