Camp justice does NOT represent a majority of tribal members here in White Earth, WE can not let a small group of people have a hold on the tribal government. 50-60 people that do nothing in our communities to improve thier lives or others should quit making such a mockery of claiming to stand for justice. Thier thug lifestyles have been interrupted with recent drugs busts. Many have chosen not to work..but feel they have the right to disrupt the employment of other tribal members. YOU DO NOT SPEAK FOR ME

Re: enrolled tribal member

You must be one of Erma's goonies that help yourself to the money that susposed to be helping the people of white earth. I don't live up there but have heard plenty of stories about her taking money for herself and also helping herself to money from the casino to use for gambling habit.

Unless you have facts not rumors and can back up your statements you should not accuse anyone of theft or of being a goon you don't live here, so you should mind your own business. Most of those protesting import DRUGS into our communities and have a give/you owe me attitude. Perhaps if the community members of the villages of White Earth had a copy of thier position, then we would understand thier protests. Go on mn courts and look at the records of those that are protesting....alcohol and drug related offenses, doesn't make them credible. What have they contributed to White Earth????

To enrolled member, what have you done for the community? You dont even live in White Earth! Your location states Detroit Lakes? Probably another caucasian who has very slim Chippewa blood, and thinks that its disgusting to live here. I dont see you contributing anything to the community here? Another thing learn how to write. That just makes you look stupid.

I am also aware of other tribes...Very much so, and white earth does not recieve any help and weather or not these protestors are credible is not the issue. What is the issue is that we have the means to provide for people who are in poverty and are not doing so!! Maybe if we helped people (maybe of course) they would not be so depressed and on drugs in the first place. I also do know the extent of extortion where reservations are concerned, I am not going to name anyone or call out but, the fact that, lets face it the money could be used to help the people of the tribe and not just certain indeviduals...If we are not being heard than the people who are credible need to come forward!!

If you believe this then you will believe anything. Check your facts before your write anything.

i think that if are a native, then you should be at least 1/4th native and have a letter saying so, to be even a native, then maybe we can get PC money like then other tribes do, i see people that are like 1/80th native get things that are for natives, like health care, a house, a job, money from high winds, but when i go to get that all the funding has ran out,,,that is what it is all about, i live here,,thanks,

You wish you worked for the tribe for 14 years. You're not intelligent because you obviously can't spell. You probably didn't make it past one day if you really did work for them. Perhaps you did and you're one of those druggie losers whose brain is so completely fried out with drugs like the rest of those jackasses. Oops, I meant PROTESTORS. Maybe you should print this out and bring it to your local library (or should I say "lieberry")so someone can read this to you?

i live in white earth, i see white people with rez cards, just look at pat clark, he married a native and now he is a native too, he is a white man all the way, on richwood road thay named a road after him too,so why is it that some white man can have a house that my tribe paid for and fixed up two times, even have a white earth card?, and i am homeless? i have a letter from the BIA saying i am 13 16th native and my mom full blood and i cant even get a job, i am still waiting to hear from toro since 1996, so i say them white people out of our tribe, if you dont have a letter saying you are least 1/4th native then get them off,then maybe i can get a job and a place to live,,
