The Crow Indian Tribe has laid off a number of employees, including the widow of former Tribal Chair Carl Venne. Edwina Little Light was Venne's wife, and was also the tribe's enrollment director. She told us that her department of five people was laid off on Monday and she also thinks some employees in other departments were also let go.
