Thank you for your comment! Bo Mazetti responds: "I do not know Marcus Golsh or his family, and I have been involved with the tribe my entire life, as was my father before me. However, the heirs are free to submit their application to the enrollment committee, over which the tribal council has no authority, membership must be accompanied by specific proofs and is ultimately voted on by tribal members. Right now new applications are on hold as the enrollment committee is reviewing a number of issues and researching lineage of current members in a debate that has plagued the tribe for years -- before the casino opened. That can be confirmed by goggling past newspaper articles. No one has been disenrolled since the casino opened 10 years ago, so the idea that I, or any council members are denying membership, because we want more money for myself, doesn't hold up. We now have a tribal court, so if Mr. Golsh feels he has a case and is being wronged, he could take his case to the court."
