Michigan tribe rejects talk of tax deal with state

Leaders of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community say they aren't negotiating a tax deal with the state of Michigan.

The KBIC executive board says the tax issue is being mediated in court. But some tribal members believe a deal is in the works.

Council member Fred Dakota, the organizer of a protest against a tax deal, says the state has no right to impose taxes on the reservation.
