It's Our Future! Nooksack Tribal Members Running for Council

But she is convinced that the original enrollment of the members of those three families was a mistake that strains tribal resources. Seattle attorney Gabe Galanda and his firm, representing the , convinced the court that the resolution was, in fact, an ordinance, and the tribal constitution requires Interior Department approval of ordinances. Instead, she and St. Bureau of Indian Affairs, the appeals court ruled. Reach John Stark at or john. It also led to the disturbance of a site from which 3,year-old human remains had previously been removed—and where archeologists and tribal members suspect more are buried. But the result left Kelly and his supporters with a majority on the council. Germain out of office so that they cannot participate when other challenged Nooksacks get their opportunity to argue their case for tribal membership before the council. For now, the coal terminal backers are being allowed to move ahead with the permitting process. In tribal elections in March , Kelly was reelected, despite a vigorous campaign against him by members of the three families and their supporters. In this case, the test was to help determine if the ground at Cherry Point could stand up to 48 million tons of coal moving over it each year. The members of those families are descendants of Annie George, who died in The tribal courts have yet to address that argument directly, and it remains to be seen if those courts will take action to stop the tribal council from disenrolling members of the three families. He declined to guess how long the approval process might take, and whether there was any chance that the federal agency would deny the approval that the tribal council needs to get the membership ouster started. The location is not shared publicly because it is spiritually important to the tribe and they are afraid of people looting the site. Diana Bob, attorney for the Lummi, declined to be interviewed for this story. The conflict between Gateway Pacific developers and the Lummi tribe underscores just how deep opposition can run among Native Americans whose homelands are in close proximity to proposed coal-shipping facilities. The original document the image is from, is available here. The area was used not only to hunt and fish, but also to manufacture reef net weights made of stone, which suggests permanent residence at the site. She added that Kelly has done a lot to improve tribal government. Mining and transportation interests want to move Wyoming and Montana coal by train so it can be loaded onto vessels on the Columbia River or Puget Sound and shipped to Asia. It is unclear why the Lummi decided against participating in the environmental lawsuit. Attorneys representing the council had argued that the resolution did not need federal approval. Read the Politics Blog at bellinghamherald. But in mid- May , the tribal council began sending out new notices to some members of the affected families, scheduling July disenrollment hearings before the tribal council under the terms of a tribal membership ordinance that received BIA approval in Ironically, the ordinance bears the signature of former chairman Narz Cunanan, a member of the Rabang family who is among those who could lose tribal membership. The chance to do those comparisons through time is really important and useful. He says that, for the Lummi, the spiritual and cultural value stretches far beyond the boundaries of site 45WH1. In a sworn statement filed in connection with the latest lawsuit, Michelle Roberts accuses Kelly of calling three council meetings with little advance notice on Jan. That membership entitles them to a wide range of benefits, among them fishing rights, health care, access to tribal housing and small cash payments for Christmas and back-to-school expenses. In another legal development, the Nooksack Court of Appeals handed the challenged Nooksack tribe members a significant victory on Wednesday, Jan. Pacific International Terminals also failed to meet a requirement to consult first with local Native American tribes, the Lummi and Nooksack tribes, about the potential archaeological impacts of the work. Kelly did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday. As they see it, the three affected families were outsiders with tenuous membership claims who should never have been admitted to the tribe to get a share of scarce tribal resources. Claims that our project will disturb sacred burial sites are absolutely incorrect and fabricated by project opponents. The tribal council, headed by Chairman Bob Kelly, had approved a resolution in August declaring that each individual facing loss of tribal membership would get a telephone hearing before the tribal council of no more than 10 minutes. Since then, members of the affected families have mounted a vigorous legal and public relations effort to retain their Nooksack membership. Court Commissioner Thurman Lowans set an Oct. In the document the company said that to mitigate potential impacts it would have an archaeologist on hand for any work done within feet of site 45WH1. Those facing the loss of tribal membership have based their membership claim on their descent from Annie George, who died in Even before the disenrollment process began, Kelly and his council allies pushed two other members off the council on grounds that they had missed council meetings, but the two contended they were targeted because they were members of the challenged families. Germain could be served with disenrollment papers. As recently as March , it seemed as though the members of three threatened families -Rabang, Rapada and Narte-Gladstone — would get a reprieve from a tribal procedure known as disenrollment that began in early After a long and convoluted legal battle in Nooksack tribal courts, the Nooksack Court of Appeals ordered a halt to the disenrollment process until the tribal council could draw up an ordinance spelling out disenrollment procedures. Germain contacted Kelly via email to let him know that they would attend the meetings by teleconference, as council members had done on some past occasions. Cherry Point and the waterways surrounding it are a culturally significant place for the Lummi Nation and other tribes. Nooksack member Marie Witt, a strong Kelly supporter, said she understands why Kelly and the other council members are keeping quiet in public. The court ordered the suspension of the tribal disenrollment process while the court continues its review of legal issues Galanda has raised on behalf of those facing loss of tribal membership. The full results sent a mixed message: Two candidates who opposed the disenrollment also were elected. Such an ordinance also would require approval from the U. Supreme Court ruling involving a New Mexico tribe. That authority has a firm legal foundation thanks to a U. We continue to believe we can come to an understanding with the Lummi Nation regarding the Gateway Pacific Terminal. In a Saturday, March 15, tribal council election, the members and their allies managed to claim two of the four council seats on the ballot, but Kelly and another incumbent were re-elected, leaving the council with an apparent majority in favor of the ouster of the Kelly, the eighth member of the council, votes only when there is a tie, but he still plays a significant leadership role. The company had planned to drill 36 more boreholes at the site before their activity was reported. For tribes, the stakes include the protection of their treaty fishing rights and the sanctity of their ancestral burial grounds. The other children were taken into protective custody Aug. Last week, after the same appeals court lifted an earlier stay of the disenrollment process, tribal police had begun serving disenrollment notices to affected tribe members, notifying them of the date and time for their telephonic hearing before tribal council. Those are among the benefits the families facing ouster could lose. The Gateway Pacific Terminal is one of three coal export facilities proposed in Oregon and Washington. Boreholes are drilled to test the soil composition and geology of a site. The Lummi signed a vast majority of their traditional land away in a treaty with the federal government in A portion of their traditional land known today as Cherry Point was taken at a later date; the tribe has disputed whether this was done lawfully. The council oversees the permitting of projects that could affect places of historic and archaeological significance, like the Gateway Pacific Terminal. Denise Wright is a member of the tribe and has asked Nooksack officials to help represent her family. Ancestors of the Lummi peoples hunted, fished and buried their dead at Cherry Point for more than 3, years. Germain and David Williams to replace Roberts. Pacific International Terminals did none of those things. And there is no shortage of archaeological evidence to prove it. Kelly and council members who support the ouster have avoided making public statements outside tribal gatherings since the controversy began more than a year ago. Pacific International Terminals said it was an accident. The projects have been met with strong opposition from various groups concerned about increases in train and vessel traffic, coal dust and climate change. Later that day, Roberts said she discovered that her tribal cellphone and email account had been shut down. The council then named Roy Bailey to replace St. The 2,member tribe operates two Whatcom County casinos. It is a large collection, filling boxes and includes harpoon points, shells, amulets, lip ornaments, reef net weights, beads, jewelry, blades and bone and rock tools, among other things. Western Washington University Faculty Herbert Taylor and Garland Grabert conducted seven separate field excavations at the site between and Both archaeologists have since died. Also participating in the hearing was a lawyer from the Nooksack Tribe. The disenrollment controversy began in early after Nooksack Tribal Council Chairman Bob Kelly and a majority of other council members agreed that members of those three families had been incorrectly enrolled in the 2,member tribe in the s, and their enrollments should be revoked. Witt, 23, said she has friends and relatives who are faced with loss of tribal membership, and she regrets that. In a ruling delivered to the tribal court office on Tuesday, March 18, a three-judge Nooksack Tribal Appeals Court panel ruled that the procedures for removing the from tribal membership rolls must be approved by the U. Until now, the threatened Nooksacks have been rebuffed in efforts to get the agency to weigh in on the membership controversy. The children are currently with their maternal grandparents. The Western Washington University collection also includes human remains, and Campbell believes that there are more Lummi ancestors buried at Cherry Point. Roberts said she believes Kelly and his supporters on the council want to get her and St. Sarah Campbell, a professor of anthropology at Western Washington University, has studied the artifacts from 45WH1 since the late s. According to company documents obtained by EarthFix after the lawsuit made them public, Pacific International Terminals drilled 37 boreholes throughout the site, ranging from 15 feet to feet in depth, without following procedures required by the Army Corps of Engineers under the National Historic Preservation Act. In an email, Galanda said it was significant that the appeals court ruling forces the Department of Interior to get involved. A year-old neighbor of the little girl has been arrested for investigation of first-degree murder and rape. The tribe and historical preservation officials with the state and federal governments have written letters to the Army Corps objecting to its decision limiting the geographic area studied to determine the potential for damage to archeological resources at Cherry Point—another point of contention as the review continues.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Roberts said she believed that Kelly had called the meetings so she and St. Department of Interior, which oversees the Bureau of Indian Affairs. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}AP — The parents of a slain 6-year-old Washington girl have asked for a full trial as they attempt to regain custody of three other children. Germain were ousted from the council under a provision of the tribal constitution that allows removal of council members who miss more than three consecutive meetings without an excuse. Officials have not said why. Campbell and others believe the site was used extensively over a long period of time, spanning from 3, years ago until relatively recently. The current legal battle is rooted in longstanding resentment against three families whose members were admitted to tribal membership in the s.
