Hearing to determine fate of alleged chief's baby

A judge held a hearing on Monday to determine the fate of the newborn son of a man who claims to be an Indian chief.

The judge allowed child welfare officials in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, to take temporary custody of the son of DaiShin WolfHawk, 53. The county claims the son is in danger because WolfHawk is a convicted sex offender.

According to The Morning Call, the hearing was going on at 10pm after 5 1/2 hours. It was closed to the public.

WolfHawk claims to be the leader of Unole E Quoni Tribe, an unrecognized group. He is married to Melissa WolfHawk, 31, who gave birth to their son on October 18. The baby was taken by the county the next day.
