Lac du Flambeau - The Lac du Flambeau Tribe declared a drug-related State of Emergency on its reservation in April.

This week, tribal leaders took more severe action against people using and selling drugs on the reservation.

The tribe kicked 58 people off the reservation on Wednesday.

The tribe says everyone banished from the reservation was involved with criminal activities, drugs, or gangs. None of the people kicked out were tribal members.

Everyone banished from the reservation had to leave within 48 hours. They're not allowed to come back in the next five years.
