    BIA not recognizing either new C&A leader

    Despite election season ending for the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, questions remain over who are the tribes’ legitimate leaders as an intra-tribal split persists.
    Late Friday afternoon, Bureau of Indian Affairs spokeswoman Nedra Darling confirmed that the federal government does not officially recognize the Eddie Hamilton government nor the Darrell Flyingman administration as the tribe’s legitimate authority at this time. Both were sworn in on Jan. 4 after each of the two factions within the tribes conducted fall 2013 elections.
