Seattle Times reporter Nina Shapiro has written in the past on our local Whatcom County Nooksack Indian tribe. She posted a lengthy and in depth article on the new tribal chair, Ross Cline Sr, and his vow to continue and finish the ejection of 306 tribal members from the tribe.
For years there have been virtually unlawful maneuvering as a majority of the indians have tried to “disenroll” a minority. Some say it is all about sharing limited gambling proceeds with fewer indians means more for each remaining member. To my efforts to follow the bouncing ball of this saga it has never been clear why. But it has been going on for years and probably will not end soon.
Monday, May 28 issue of the Seattle Times has the article. There is a paywall to the Times but you may get a free article if you have not been there too often.
