Laws To Be "Strictly Enforced"
Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal lawmen would like to remind all pow-wow goers that no liquor or dangerous drugs will be allowed on the Arlee grounds this year, as always. Everyone is subject to a search of his or her person or vehicle at the entry gate (members and non-members alike) and if someone exhibits inebriated behavior, he or she could be refused entry to the celebration.
Penalties for convicted violators of the regulations can go as high as: possession of dangerous drugs • $500 fine and/or 6 months in jail; possession of alcohol - $180 fine and/or 3 months in jail. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED THIS SUMMER and all cited violators WILL be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Also, non-members of the CSK Tribes should be aware of Ordinance 43b, paragraph 8, which says they can't operate any kind of games of chance (card or stickgames, for example) at the pow-wow. This rule, too, will be enforced.
A timely reminder brought to you by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Chief of Police and the Tribal Prosecutor's office.
