White Earth members adopt constitutional change

MAHNOMEN, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Tribal voters of the White Earth Nation have overwhelmingly passed a plan to scrap a constitutional rule that says tribal membership is based on blood, not family lineage.

Supporters say the tribes shrinking population will get a critical boost and the outcome makes the Chippewa tribe the first to change the rules for who can be a tribal member as well as revising its constitution.

Tribal Chair Erma Vizenor says she's pleased with the outcome...saying "the people have spoken."
