Kickapoo Tribe refiles charges against elderly women

The Kickapoo Tribe of Oklahoma has refiled criminal charges against three elderly women who staged a takeover of the tribal headquarters. New charges were filed against two women.

Auchee Wahpepah, Valentina Jimenez, Glenda Deer, Juanita Prado and Zelma Garza are accused of trespassing. The women were arrested after tribal and Bureau of Indian Affairs stormed the headquarters on New Year's Day.

The women were protesting actions of chairman Tony Salazar, demanding that he step aside. They want an audit of the tribe's finances.
