Chairman of Chippewa Cree Tribe disputes removal from post
Posted: Tuesday, March 19, 2013
The leader of the Chippewa Cree Tribe
of Montana is disputing his suspension from office.
Chairman Kenneth St. Marks was elected in November. He said he was removed because he is cooperating with federal agencies that are investigating corruption within the tribe.
But the council claims St. Marks has been in dereliction of his duties. A hearing next Monday could end up with him being kicked out of office for good.
“I was elected by the people,” St. Marks told The Havre Daily News. “Only the people should fire me.”
