Kickapoo Tribe still looking to resolve water woes

The Kickapoo Tribe of Kansas is still waiting for action to resolve the long-standing water crisis on the reservation.

The tribe is asking the Nemaha-Brown Watershed Joint District No. 7 to exercise eminent domain over land needed for a reservoir project. But the board has delayed a vote several times.

The tribe also asked Bureau of Indian Affairs head Dave Anderson to get involved. The federal government could exercise eminent domain on behalf of the tribe.
