Seminole Nation back in business

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2002

The Seminole Nation of Oklahoma is trying to return to normalcy after a dispute over leadership shut down the tribe for several days.

Businesses which were shuttered as the result of a now-invalidated court order have reopened. The tribe says it lost $4 million in the interim.

Elected principal chief Ken Chambers is still trying to negotiate full recognition of his administration. The Bureau of Indian Affairs recognizes Jerry Haney, who failed to gain enough votes in a primary to be a viable candidate for election.
