Lakota Voice blogger Ann-erika White Bird sees a little justice done by her Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council. White Bird reports that the council voted unanimously to fire Rosebud Attorney General Aisha Uwais-Savage Concha Wednesday:
During the discussion about the Attorney General, Antelope Community Councilman Calvin “Hawkeye” Waln, Jr. stated, “We’re going into the final year of the contract and she hasn’t passed a bar (exam). There’s malfeasance and there’s a liability and credibility in presenting litigation in court, and based on a recommendation from the judiciary and resolutions from communities, I move to terminate the Attorney General’s contract for cause, the cause being malfeasance.
"She was lying about being an enrolled member of a federally recognized Tribe, she disrespects our Lakota culture, disrespects our Tribal members' sacred names to the point an elder is crying, and blatant insubordination to Tribal Council instruction and motions. We’ll see who puts a non-Indian before our tribal members" [Ann-erika White Bird, "Attorney General Concha Fired," Lakota Voice, 2015.01.03].
Councilman Waln's objections to Concha's continued employment match the controversial complaints White Bird has reported on her blog throughout the past year.
