The band has selected 35 delegates to a constitutional convention. It will be the first time in 42 years the tribe's constitution has been updated. The document dates back to 1932. Convention chairman Leslie LaFountain will be setting dates for delegate meetings. The tribe hired Phoenix attorney Robert Lyttle who specializes in constitution revision projects to help out with the process. "We are having wonderful cooperation by all the people, and we are off to a good start," LaFountain said.
