Prairie Island tribal members sue U.S. Department of Interior


ST. PAUL — Members of the Prairie Island Indian Community filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Interior Wednesday following the federal government's recent refusal to acknowledge the Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of Minnesota.

Prairie Island tribal members Margo Bellanger, Tina Jefferson and Michael J. Childs Jr. filed the Administrative Procedures Act suit individually and on behalf of the Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of Minnesota seeking three remedies:

• Federal acknowledgement of the Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of Minnesota as a tribe separate and apart from Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, Prairie Island Indian Community and Lower Sioux Indian Community.
