Chairwoman of White Earth Band of Chippewa Resigns


The longtime chairwoman of the White Earth Band of Chippewa has resigned.

The tribal council voted 3-0 to accept Erma Vizenor's resignation.

She was censured in late December for working outside her scope of authority over a new constitution and faced an ouster from her position.

Vizenor became chairwoman in 2004.

The tribe owns and operates Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen.
