11/12/08 - Tribe seeks to remove father from settlement based on race

Author:

A local resident on the Meskwaki settlement is claiming foul after the tribe has threatened to kick him out of his wife's home.

At issue is apparently the man's heritage, which is not Meskwaki.

"My wife and I refuse to let this happen," said James Ironshell, a native of the Sioux tribe. "It's wrong. It's basically and ethically wrong."
