  • Northern Cheyenne leaders challenged

    Billings, Montana (AP)

    A group of Northern Cheyenne tribal members is calling for a referendum to rescind or revise several tribal laws and bring changes in tribal government.

    The Northern Cheyenne government has been in turmoil since summer, when eight council members and Vice President Rick Wolfname split with President Eugene Little Coyote.

    The petition group’s coordinator, Marie Sanchez, presented the documents calling for the referendum to the tribal council during a special meeting the last week of November. The petition was given to tribal Secretary Sharlene Evans, who will validate the signatures and set an election date.
