White Earth leaders address drug epidemic, poverty


The people of White Earth came together for the annual State of the Nation address at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen Tuesday to hear the good, the bad and the ugly of reservation life over the past year.

It was a year that included the resignation of longtime White Earth Chair Erma Vizenor, who stepped down amid allegations of constitutional reform violations. In her absence, Interim White Earth Chair Steven “Punky” Clark was the main keynote speaker. Clark is White Earth’s District 1 Representative. He started out talking about efforts to keep oil pipelines off reservation land.
