Disenrollment from Native American tribes leaves families ‘culturally homeless’
Mia Prickett’s ancestor was a leader of the Cascade Indians along the Columbia River and was one of the chiefs who signed an 1855 treaty that helped establish the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde in Oregon.

Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait…
What’s the story here?
The first sentence makes my brow knit so fast that I get a cramp, then the paragraph underneath is about Mia Prickett.
What’s the story about? How are people getting disenrolled from tribes? Who is doing the disenrolling? Is it voluntary? Is it involuntary?
What’s going on?
I’ll post a source here.
Ok, so it’s about tribal committees disenrolling people based on possible erroneous documentation. It’s a pretty big mess. I hope it gets sorted out soon.
