The Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians of California has removed another 43 people from the rolls, The Sierra Star reports.

The tribe at one point had more than 1,000 people on the rolls. But the list has been trimmed repeatedly over the years -- including nearly 150 earlier this year, according to news reports.

Some tribal leaders have called for an end to the disenrollment campaign but they were removed from the council. Another election -- the second this year -- was held on December 1.
