Sho-Ban council censors tribal newspaper letters

Two members of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of Idaho are upset because their letters to the tribal newspaper weren't published.

Wesley Edmo and Marcia Hall found out that tribal leaders barred the publication of the letters in the Sho-Ban News. They said their tribal rights to free speech are being violated.

Business committee chairman Alonzo Colby wouldn't talk in detail about the letters because he is named in one of them. But he said the tribe has a right to determine what goes in the paper.

Colby and two other business committee members are up for election today.
