On Sept. 5, I was laid off from my job as Crow Nation Wellness Center director. My dad, Ronnie Stewart, was also laid off the same day. The reason: Dana Wilson, my son, is running for vice chairman in the tribal elections next month. I have given my best, working for my people and I know I provided them with the best care possible.

Many dedicated, productive and qualified people have been laid off because of politics. I feel sorry for those people who remain stuck in a system run by a dictator, having to sign in at all mandatory meetings and rallies, with the threat of job termination. This practice is inhumane and violates their rights. An injustice has been done to them, making them dependent on the Crow Tribe for a job, not being given the opportunity to acquire job skills, work ethics and professionalism to work at a real job off the reservation. These mandatory meetings are redundant, same speakers, same topic. First it was the water compact, now it is the coal issue. If I heard it once, I get it; I am not a slow learner nor am I intellectually challenged.

The cultural advisers should inform/advise the current chairman of Chief Sits In The Middle of The Land's curse of the chairman/leader position.

Shame on Cedric and Little Man for using a little boy (junior politician) to do their dirty work by having him hand carry my letter to me! And by the way, these three are all blood relatives and clan relatives!
