Snoqualmie Tribe: Ineptitude, Dissolution and Terminations Abound

The Snoqualmie Tribe is in the press looking stupid and ineffective again. The Worthless BIA is going to get involved! Doesn't that just give you the warm fuzzies?


Locks and heavy chains sealed the administrative offices of the Snoquamie Tribe, and the tribe’s retail store, Paddle, in downtown Snoqualmie last week after a dispute between rival halves of the tribal council paralyzed the tribe’s government.

Tribal Administrator Matt Mattson told the Record that he ordered the offices closed Monday, Aug. 30, three days after the elders of the tribe called for the tribal council to be dissolved and new elections held. Mattson said he was receiving conflicting resolutions from competing quorums of the council, and made the decision after consulting legal counsel for the tribe and the Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs. The nine-member council includes alternates that allow it to form multiple quorums, or majority votes.

Tribal services continue to function, and Snoqualmie Casino remains open. SHUT IT DOWN
