Appelate Court wants tribal prosecutor removed POPLAR- The Fort Peck Tribal Prosecutor was ordered to appear before the Tribal Appeals Court, Thursday, July 9. 1987, to show why he should not be suspended or disbarred from practice as prosecutor. David Red Fox was ordered to the show cause hearing July 1st, on the grounds that his conduct violated the duties of the office because he "failed to make sure that each case is properly and fairly presented and that you dismissed criminal complaints that were supported by sufficient evidence." In addition the order states, "you have violated Tribal Law UCCOJ 602], in that you are not eligible to serve as Tribal Prosecutor, because you lack high moral character and integrity required to fill the position, that you have violated your oath oj offices as set forth in UCCOJ 604] and any other applicable ABA rule of Professional Conduct." The hearing was ordered by the Court of Appeals on its own motion ana came as a result of having been presented with evidence of prior criminal offenses and case dismissals which were supported by sufficient evidence, according to court documents. Red Fox said in an interview Wednesday that the case against him has "no merit" and the Tribal Constitution was violated by the Appeals court "just to get at me." He said the hearing involves a constitutional issue because the Tribal Executive Board hired him. "If anyone has any complaints against me they can set up a hearing with the Tribal Executive Board and they will hire or fire me. They can't just disbar me," he added. However the Appeals Court is expected to issue an advisory opinion based on its 64th Annual Wild Horse Stampede Weekend WOLF POINT�The 64th annual Wild Horse Stampede is scheduled for July 10-12 at Wolf Point.

Native media � gutless by Rudy Mann Kanai News VANCOUVER-The Native news media is gutless, says a leading Indian academic and journalist. It's afraid to tackle corruption within the Native community, says Dr. John Mohawk, a Seneca Indian, and professor of American Indian history, law and psychology at the University of New York. But it's not all their fault, said the former editor of Akwesasne Notes, once considered the best Native newspaper in the world. The Native news media � newspaper, radio and television � is too dependent on Native politicians, or the influence they have with advertisers and funding agencies, to risk biting the hand that feeds it, Mohawk said in an interview. The Native media also hasn't been around long enough to establish a firm set of journalistic ethics, he added. Native journalism is a "tricky" field where reporters have to balance positive stories, which help Native self-image, with what he Mesuibea as decent ifiyesMjattVfe reporting. Mohawk also said the Native media doesn't have enough experienced managers to make it work smoothly. And that's compounded by other managers who don't care what happens as long as they can collect a paycheck. The mainstream white press isn't helping solve the problems faced Media-page 4 Wolf Point Community Casino By Garrett Big Leggins WOLF POINT �Drawing on kinship values and parallels between employees and their ancestors, Fort Peck Tribal Chairman Ken E.
