Tribal Council 'ready' for challenges
Challenges await the newly elected Prairie Island Tribal Council, the leaders acknowledged Monday. Those include threats to sovereignty and to the tribal-owned Treasure Island Resort & Casino.
But the five leaders expressed confidence as they took the oath of office and delighted in the day and the tribe’s successes. They praised elders for leading the way through hard times and pledged to work equally hard to ensure Prairie Island remains as prosperous.
