Tribes are 'not qualified to run city government'Aug 16, 2017 Kevin Shipman, Riverton
On the question of the new lawyers trying to get Riverton moved onto the reservation, giving the tribes control over Riverton government would be a terrible mistake.
They can't handle their own government affairs very well and never have. In my opinion, they are not qualified to run a city government. That is a difficult job and it is very much different from tribal government.
If it did happen, I doubt the tribes would find it a satisfactory situation, either.
