The vice chairman of the Spokane Tribe has resigned under significant pressure from tribal members after being convicted of bison poaching in Montana. Rudy Peone, chairman of the Spokane Tribal Business Council, announced in an email that Rodney W. Abrahamson resigned on Thursday.

Tribal council could oust member

Spokane Tribe leaders are deciding whether to oust their vice chairman for lying to a game officer investigating bison poaching in Montana. Rodney W. Abrahamson was convicted of five misdemeanors after he illegally killed two bison north of Yellowstone National Park in February. The court record states he lied to Montana wildlife agents about his identity. He claimed to be Nez Perce, the tribe that has rights to hunt bison.
