I don't want to be the negative one by saying, what a coincidence that it's election time, or that these should have been taking place in the last 2 years and not before an election. So i won't say it.

What were your credit card expenditures for your entire term?

Why did you hire Ryan Ortiz back after we fired him in 2010 for embezzling?

I hope they have an open floor for open questions and concerns that our tribal members can pose during this meeting. Not ones that are written down that they can pick and choose to answer.

Send your real questions to arapahovoice@gmail.com Got a story, dirt, facts? Send em in. Why are 3 council members not signing off on ordinance 31 requests that pertain to Ryan Ortiz? Why has the Arapaho Ranch board had the same members for years when the term limit is 3 years? Does anyone know?

Will it be over the web.so tribal members that don't live in state can attend?

Are you going to punish anymore of us and take our special grants?

Probably to explain all the money that's gonna get paid to the entire state public schools from the casinos profits?

Who gets the hay from Arapaho Farms?

Is it going to a live feed?

Answer Liz questions. Answer any ones questions. DRESSER lol Answer the Question.

What happened to our General Council Meeting?

WHY ARE THESE "INFORMATION MEETINGS" TAKING PLACE ALL OF A SUDDEN? SHOULD'VE BEEN DOING THIS MONTHLY & ENSURING GENERAL COUNCIL MEETINGS HAPPEN SO "BUSINESS" CAN BE TAKEN CARE OF AND ADDRESSED! SO....AFTER ELECTION WE PROBABLY WON'T HAVE ANYMORE "INFORMATION" MEETINGS UNTIL RIGHT BEFORE NEXT ELECTION CYCLE!?! Just venting this political atmospheric same-o same-o...will it really change anyone's vote? Probably not...but hey, I thought I'd point it out just to put it out there! 🤫🤔🤪

What's on the menu for food? Will there be fry bread? Better to listen on a full stomach than an empty one.

Fire Ryan Ortiz…

Some of those people are in jail and so they won’t be able to sign or cash them. Put it in their direct deposit or create an account for them. When they get out they can access it.

My check got sent to an address I don't live at anymore and it didn't get sent back to the tribe so that must mean it was thrown away. Who do I call to reissue the check?

What’s it for?who it’s for?

It’s good to see people running for business council but would there be this many people if they was been paid only minimum wages? They saying when your a council men your doing it for the people. Well would they still be doing it for the people making minimum wage?

Didnt they stop other people at the last election for running over a second term?

NABC Chairman Jordan Dresser attends White House summit aimed at combatting hate-motivated violence

The Northern Arapaho Business Council is pleased to announce Chairman Jordan Dresser attended the White House today to participate in the United We Stand Summit.

Chairman Dresser was among 21 “uniters” chosen for their work to “bring their communities together across lines of racial, religious, political and other differences to prevent acts of hate-fueled violence, promoting healing where such violence has had devastating consequences, and build unity.” The Biden administration characterized the Summit as the beginning of a multi-pronged effort to counter a rise in hatred and bigotry that threatens public safety, national unity and democracy itself.

“Hatred and extremism pose a danger to all of us,” said Chairman Dresser. “Indian Country has a vital perspective on these issues, and I am proud to join the President and community leaders from across the country as we embark on this important, bipartisan effort to find common ground, heal divisions and foster unity.”

Chairman Dresser has helped lead efforts to raise awareness about longstanding threats and violence against indigenous women and children. He was recently appointed to the federal Not Invisible Act Commission, tasked with helping survivors and victims’ families by recommending ways to improve intergovernmental coordination and law enforcement practices.

The United We Stand Summit corresponded with a series of announcements by President Biden about federal efforts to help local communities prevent, respond to and recover from violence; the launch of a national initiative – Dignity.us – to foster civil dialogue and seek solutions to violence; the signing of a bipartisan Compact to Combat Hate and Extremism by 140 mayors nationwide; a cooperative effort by multiple philanthropic groups; new efforts by social media and technology companies to identify threats of violence on their networks; and more.

Well good for you a vacation trip. Unity begins by recognizing all Natives no matter what tribe they belong to. There is more prejudice between tribes and we can’t even find progress or admit that it exists. Tribal leaders are so busy stuffing their pockets they don’t see the problem. Only when we recognize all Natives will we ever see progress. All these summits and meetings are meaningless as far as unity goes. Meetings that waste federal funds and join the ever linger list of failed Indian politics.

Biden looks lost

If people are complaining so much then use that energy to get proactive and work with everyone to make it heard. Go to General Council Meetings for Quorum. Get a job in Tribal Office, or get elected. Being a fly on the tee pee wall does no help for anyone. Work together make it happen positively. Power to you ✊ a-hou ✋

Awesome you got invited Chairman Jordan Dresser I’m glad you got to meet President Biden about issues of villance I wish these one understand that you guys get in voted to things that is a Summit and they could get out there and do there’s part but they don’t but I’m glad you got invited to go and I hope it good learning experience.

Jordan Dresser you know the saying where ever the head turns the body will follow . Although you guys are taken trips buying gifts and keeping a Government to Government relationship, it only last so long before more issues within the tribe spills outside and more tribal members become more of some other things that they might have not been aware of I see other comments and post about the tribe and its members assuming the business council is corrupt and how people need to get facts about things when more then half the facts is already out there. The mismanagement waste or abuse of funds is definitely a problem and other issues that you guys have created that people are aware of like a hostile work environment thats been created and retaliation against tribal members for speaking out against what people feel is misconduct financial abuse is one thing putting tribal members at risk but the actions that you guys have taken against tribal members for speaking up and taken royalty payments as a form of retaliation

This is awesome

That chick looks disappointed in the background haha

Nice vacation on tribal funds .... lol looks like your having fun while the problems are still here on the rez .... jus saying .... 🤷

Share the info you get! Nobody benefits from only one person knowing the resources and info you get. Can we all get copies of them too?

Wait, just wait, is that a Shoshone shirt he's wearing? 😨 What the heck chief! Wrong colors!

You'd think it'd be easy to get rid of the 140 mayors that are responsible for the hate and extremism...

Sucker got a Shoshone rose on his shirt replace him with an Arapaho Councilman!!...

Those colors are flamboyant

Thank you for sharing

With wisdom comes the ability to know when your being fed a line of BS. Wake up everybody.
