Allakaket banishes 4 people over meth

 

February 27, 2017



FAIRBANKS — Allakaket Chief PJ Simon has a message for methamphetamine dealers: “You’re not welcome here. Meth is not welcome in Allakaket,” Simon said in a phone interview Thursday. “We can banish people. The tribal board can vote to disenroll a tribal member. We are willing to go that route.”

Simon said four people suspected of dealing methamphetamines were confronted and banished from the village Tuesday after an emergency tribal council meeting was held.
