WHITE EARTH (KDLM) - The White Earth Tribal Council says one of its members is getting death threats and it addressed the situation by making a Facebook Live video.
The target of the threats, Alan Roy, was elected as the Secretary-Treasurer on the Tribal Council in June. Roy said that in recent months, four people have made threats against him and/or criminally harassed his wife and three young kids. One harasser has already received a restraining order, while Roy is calling out for two more individuals to receive restraining orders as well. Additionally, the Mahnomen County Attorney has charged Michael Keezer with felony Terroristic Threats.
Roy also said he's never experienced such hatred, not even during his 10-plus years in the armed forces.
Roy believes the animosity directed toward him and his family has been orchestrated by political figures, but he would not name who he believes is behind those alleged plans.
