Te-Moak Council - An ambulance was called to tonight's Te-Moak Council meeting when an elder of the Tribe suffered a medical condition.
The council meeting began 3 hours late and the major discussion of the night was about Wayne Bill being removed by South Fork band council as a Te-Moak representative. A letter was written to South Fork council asking Dallas Smales to step down from council because of her pleading guilty to a charge of embezzling from an Indian organization, which is a felony. Because of Wayne Bill's vote asking for the resignation, South Fork band council, led by Chairman Alice Tybo, wanted Wayne Bill's removal. Tribal Chairman Davis Gonzales refused to recognize Dallas Smales conviction of embezzlement despite being handed paperwork which showed the embezzlement was in the amount of 50,000 dollars. Tonight's only discussion was about South Fork band council until an elder suffered a medical episode. The health of the elder is not known at this time.
