Local tribal activists were disappointed, but not surprised when the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council took no action on their request to schedule a tribal vote on proposed amendments to the Tribal Constitution. Activists made that request to the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council at the October 30, 2014 meeting held shortly before the November 4 election where five Council seats were open.

What is the definition of a Tribe? Mr. Webster has several definitions, two pertinent to this column: 1) a group of person, family or clans believed to be descended from a common ancestor and forming a close community under a leader or chief and 2) any group of people having the same occupation, habits or ideas. This week I write about a unique "Tribe" living in southeastern Montana, bordering the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation - the Amish Colony near Ashland is one of five in Montana and the newest enclave, founded in the last 15 years.
