Family fights disenrollment from Sauk-Suiattle Tribe

Members of a prominent Sauk-Suiattle family went before the tribal council on Monday to defend their heritage and prevent their disenrollment.

The Bill family has been active in tribal politics for years. But after a rival family came into power recently, seven Bills were said to have been wrongly enrolled.

The council says an ancestor of the seven people in question should not have been enrolled. A final decision was put off until June 10.
