Analysis: A power dispute within Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes

Analysis of a leadership dispute within the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma:
In western Oklahoma, tension and drama seem perpetually to surround the governance of the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes. The events of 2013 are maintaining that baneful tradition.

Local operatives of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) have gummed up the operations of the common government of the Two Tribes, preventing the administration of Governor Janice Prairie-Chief Boswell from operating independently.

According to the federal government – as in the Interior Department in Washington, D.C., ostensibly the managing unit over BIA -- Janice Prairie-Chief Boswell was legitimately elected as the governor of the C&A Tribes in January 2010. Her victory ousted a scandal-tainted incumbent, Darrell Flyingman.
