Cheyenne-Arapahos don't want leaders to handle funds
Tuesday, May 11, 2004

Members of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma say their leaders shouldn't have access to profits from the tribal casino.

Business committee members are given discretion to use $10 million as they choose. But tribal members say use of the "emergency assistance" funds has led to corruption.

So instead, tribal members are revamping how the money is distributed. An allocation formula has been developed and is awaiting approval from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
