Disenrollment for Dollars (9/14/00)
Date of this Version
The Las Vegas Paiute tribal council disenrolled 14 people out of its 54-member tribe. The council ruled that the people did not have sufficient records of their ancestral heritage. The disenrollees, however, say that big development money, per capita payments and a greedy tribal council is why they were kicked out. How is wealth affecting intertribal relations? Are we succumbing to greed and outside interests?
