We had to break down early this afternoon due to the wind.

Kendra Smith Sheena Beanz

All of a sudden bribery behind programs that should of been offered years ago I find it funny how you all as the business council seem to continue to try and cover up or deal with problems here and their pick and choose when you guys want to give tribal members some type of opportunity after you guys have all done violated tribal members rights this isnt ok you guys are in a breach of contract of being sworn in under oath everything you guys have done to try and make up for bigger issues and project blame and act as if you guys are doing something good for the tribe 1st off quit with the bribery tactics because those who dont end up signing up for any of the programs that's shouldv been offered before moreless those who dont learn about what the tribe had all along to offer years and years of funds went uncounted for as to embezzle and defraud our own people to be unethical in your guys practice as to acting as if everything going on out on the wind river reservation is everybody else's faults and business council is just trying to help lol Horrible tribal members had to be bribed as to recieve their own portion of funding that was given to the tribe under the covid relief fund no fears act just to recieve 500 dollars in which was funds everybody was already entitled too so those who refused to get vaccinated under their own beliefs system has moreless suffered because the council embezzled the rest of the funds defrauded your own people this council has been keeping the tribal members oppressed and spending funds on whatever it is they wish that's why the tribe is only doing medical grants other money that should be distributed through our monthly percap as to 0 balance loans we have to pay back as to funds that should also be issued out to all tribal members through our monthly percaps also yet forced to pay that back as to other issues that are going on to project blame as to take the eyes off y'all shift your gears to act concerned about what's been going on in school in st Stephen's as to physical and sexual abuse and other issues that the feds decided to jump in on well what about tribal corruption business council violates our own laws as to the tribe resolution to reject a recall of council members who engaged in the same type of misconduct and still on the council while head chairman keeps his back turned and stays out of site as to if he dont know what's really going on being appointed to the federal joint commission on reducing violent crime against Indians well I'll be damned sounds like someone paying feds to back off the council when the truth is they shouldv been investigated before hearing about the school problem due to misuse and abuse and waste mismanagement of funds embezzlement racketeering defrauding our own people violating tribal members rights keeping them oppressed business council must of caught wind that theirs other tribal members who live out of state and off the reservation and are being turned away from recieving any type of help and started making the appropriate complaints offering programs now and trying to educate the tribal members about programs now because like I said must've caught wind nobody's going to continue to tolerate how you guys choose to function behind closed doors and nobodys going to allow the bribery or continue for council to project the lime light in different directions but where the light should be on the council as to their the head of the snake and where the head turns body will follow when you guys conduct your selves in manor as if your some type of indian mafia lol get real now you guys need a forensic audit conducted on all the councilmen along with those in enrollment and other tribal agencies to see where money has been spent and sent to who for what reasons as to why do we even have contracts with the rocky mountain regional bureau of Indian affairs as to programs director Susan and Joellen oversee for the tribes enrollment because they too cant follow tribes own policies as to guidelines that post to be followed as to make sure that they too are following the rules but even out their in Montana they seem a little questionable their selves as to that they too maybe also engaging in misconduct but definitely those who are employees of the tribe need to get some class more self respect and respect for the people you guys are working for post to be working to help better our tribal members lives and their own but get caught up into tribal corruption tribal employees should be working in good faith and standing as to icwa director too all I can say is you know your job title as a person to intervene in child welfare cases ICWA COMES 1ST NOT LAST IN CHILD WELFARE CASES your track record with icwa cases involving our arapaho children is starting to look as if its intentional sabotaging our tribal members children doing things in false pretensesalong with enrollment is a violation of icwa its self and a brezchbof your contracts too with the tribe you know your job as to state child welfare social workers that in a child neglect or abuse case that if a social worker believes a child to be an indian child then you intervene you dont go around the fact as to determine a childs eligibility with the state and go along with enrollment as to also do things in false pretenses without the proper paper work being turned in and submitted and adress the proper way of the tribe acting and working in good standards for the tribe and being ethical but not to mention things done in false pretenses with out proper paper work submitted is fraud and creates situations for tribal members in state cases it violates the icwa its self and it violates tribal members due process to have fair treatment with the state and tribe as to allegations being made and disrupts a tribal members right to even appeal enrollment decision upon a child not being eligible they can not contest that if things by you or enrollment are advocating for the state as to correspond with other outside governments and violate our tribal member rights in doing so you guys basically engage in adoption fraud by saying children are not enrolled or not eligible for enrollment with out having proper enrollment papers submitted by legal guardian or parent of the Indian child waiting on hearing back on enrollment or you going ahead and writing letters to the state in determining a person's status with the tribe writing letters in that format to influence a judges decision in making a certain ruling which ends up turning a judges decision to parental termination of parents rights you know that our tribe is in a agreement with state of Wyoming under the title iv-e for children who enter into temporary foster care tribe basically although council says that we pay ahead of time for the services and the state reimburst the tribe it seems more of an illegal kick back for children who end up in state custody so where is the compliance enforcement officer oh ya he too also was let go people are accountable for their actions of you guys cant hold members of our own business council accountable the tribal corruption then dont go trying to make others look as bad as you guys are making the tribe look bad and that's my opinion as to you guys need to get right overreach of authority as to all you should be removed form your jobs you guys have cost the tribe and its members enough problems as to your actions in engaging in misconduct must I say any more
