Lac du Flambeau Band without president for two months
The Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin has gone without a president for two months.

Carl Edwards abruptly resigned on November 23, 2009. But the tribe was unable to choose a replacement at a meeting on Saturday due to a snag in the process.

Secretary Betty Graveen took responsibility for failing to notify tribal members about the meeting. She said the tribe had "gotten along without a president" fine but later agreed it was necessary to choose a new leader.

Another meeting will be scheduled to discuss how to find a new president.
