Northern Cheyenne council votes to oust tribal president, who refuses to leave


October 9, 2017

LAME DEER — The Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council on Friday unanimously voted to remove the tribe’s president from office, but the reservation’s top elected official has refused to recognize the resolution and says the vote violated a tribal court ruling from the day before.

By a vote of 9-0, the council concurred with a recommendation from Ronald Bigback Sr., a tribal elder who served as the hearing officer during the special meeting Friday morning, to remove President Jace Killsback.
