Asked today at the Boise City Club if their two tribes get along, officials of the Coeur d’Alene and Nez Perce Indian tribes said yes. The two North Idaho tribes have much in common, they said, including new, young leadership. Coeur d’Alene Tribal Chairman Chief Allan noted that the Nez Perce chairwoman, Rebecca Miles, likes to “rub it in” that she’s even younger than he is – though by only a few months. Overall, the tribes get along well, he said: “Historically it hasn’t always been that way, but over the last century or so it’s been pretty good.”
