Members of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe of Michigan who are being disenrollment held a protest on Saturday.

The tribe is removing 234 people from the rolls. Most have been targeted in the past and had their cases dismissed so they question why the effort has restarted.

“This isn’t just a membership issue or an employment issue,” Lisa Kennedy told Central Michigan Life at the protest, which took day as the tribe's 30th anniversary powwow. “This is an issue of human rights.”

The tribe's Office of Administrative Hearings has allowed the disenrollment proceedings to move forward.
