"Traditional Law"
by Cecelia Johnson


May 12, 2004

In regard to the KIC recall I think this is an opportune time to go to the part of "traditional law" which is stated in our bylaws and forego "dominant society" rules and regulations. It has been stated that the tribal council could not go into executive session addressing a recall. Then go to the table "in the best interest of the people you serve" and talk. If you cannot agree then come to a compromise. Leadership and politics can go hand in hand if you communicate. There is no need for lawyers.
