White Earth man on hunger protest for children

Doug Clark, a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe in Minnesota, is on a hunger strike in hopes of getting his 9-year-old daughter and 3-year-old grandchild back.

On April 1, the tribe removed the children from Clark's care after a series of mishaps involving the police. A few days later he was evicted from tribal housing because he didn't have any children in his home.

Clark, 50, whose wife was killed three years ago, went to tribal court to find his daughter and grandchild. He says the tribe hasn't told him where they are staying.
