The appointed council of the Meskwaki Tribe of Iowa will hold a special election tomorrow but the elected council says it won't recognize the results.

The leadership dispute has prompted the National Indian Gaming Commission to order a closure of the tribe's casino. NIGC says it still recognizes the elected council as the rightful tribal government.
