Judge issues temporary order vacating removal of three Sac and Fox tribal council members


A Sac and Fox tribal judge Saturday issued a temporary order vacating the tribe’s general council’s removal that day of three of five tribal council members who faced a recall petition.

Tribal District Judge Theresa L. Barr ordered a hearing be held by Aug. 23 regarding the effort to oust council chairman Edmore Green, vice chairman James Jensen and treasurer Nancy Keller.

The order concluded the removals violated the Constitution of the Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska because no petition for removal was presented and the three weren’t given a 15-day notice and a chance to present a defense to the tribe’s grievance committee.
