Members of the Turtle Mountain Ojibwe Tribe of North Dakota narrowly defeated a change in their constitution last week, the Associated Press reports.

The vote was 2,050 to 1,993. The change would have set up a system of checks and balances, added a bill of rights and cut down salaries of tribal officials.
