Tribes working to recover from shutdown of federal government

The federal government reopened its doors on Thursday but Indian Country is still feeling the effects of the 16-day shutdown.

The Crow Tribe of Montana furloughed more than 300 employees at the start of the debacle. Some still don't know whether they will be able to return to work.

The Yurok Tribe of California halted several programs and furloughed 60 employees. Most should be back on the job in the next day or so but Vice Chair Sue Masten said the crisis isn't over because the budget deal expires in just a couple of months.

The Fort Belknap Indian Community in Montana didn't stop any programs but might have to take out a $2 million loan to cover costs incurred during the shutdown. President Tracy “Ching” King is also worried about a repeat scenario when the deal expires in January 2014.

“D.C. has to get their act together. They have to quit running the government by chaos,” Brian Cladoosby, the newly-elected president of the National Congress of American Indians, told the Associated Press. “We are getting impacted by that type of government.”
