LAC DU FLAMBEAU - Some members of the Lac du Flambeau tribe believe they should amend an article of the tribes constitution.
The tribe is its own sovereign nation.
But an amendment in the tribes constitution says the US government needs to be a part of the process to amend their Constitution.
Members of the tribe voted the measure down 40 to 72.
A total of 231 Tribal Members completed and returned the Secretarial Election Notice Packets. Of the 231 eligible voters, 112 voted in Tuesday's election.
That means the constitution will go unchanged.
According to a press release, The purpose of the election was to determine if Tribal Members wanted to amend Article VIII of the Tribe's constitution. The proposed Article VIII amendment would have removed the federal government's process to amend the Tribe's Constitution, and replaces it with a 100% Tribal process.
The Constitution Committee says they'll continue their work to educate the Membership, and to insure that the Tribe's constitution meets the needs of the Members.

A $1,500 Wisconsin Public Service Foundation grant paid for almost all of the walkway, which will lead through the garden to a picnic table. The walkway will be ADA-accessible, which will allow people with wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers to navigate the garden.
