BIA Will Not Recognize Actions of Holdover Nooksack Tribal Council

Here is the letter from ASIA Larry Roberts to Robert Kelly:


An excerpt:

We will not recognize any actions until duly elected officials are seated in accordance with the Tribe’s Constitution and Bylaws.  This includes recent actions by you and two Council members to enjoin the authority of the Northwest Intertribal Court System (NICS).  Since the NICS was authorized by a quorum of the Council to adjudicate matters prior to March 24, 2016, we will continue to recognize judicial decisions issued by the NICS.
