TRIBAL TERRORISM includes Banishment
The Nooksack Tribe is claiming victory in a long-running disenrollment dispute after a federal judge dismissed a novel lawsuit filed by a group of ousted citizens.
The tribe, based in Washington state, has spent more than five years trying to kick hundreds of people off its rolls. The efforts were slowed by litigation and by the refusal of the Bureau of Indian Affairs to recognize the Nooksack government as legitimate.
But the tribe has turned the situation around, according to its recently-elected leader. Chairman Ross Cline said the dismissal of the lawsuit last week puts an end to a controversy that has attracted widespread attention in Indian Country and in the national media.
“On behalf of the tribal council and the Nooksack people, I am glad to report the successful conclusion of this dispute over tribal enrollment," Cline said after the decision was handed down on July 31. "Our people will now move forward on our journey of self-government.”
The tribe is indeed moving forward, just without a group known as The Nooksack 306. That name comes from the large number of people who were subjected to "involuntary disenrollment" earlier this year, after being threatened with removals for the better part of a decade.
