Oneida Tribal Traditions

Lost in the recent brouhaha against Chairperson Delgado based on the laughable accusations in the removal petition that’s been circulated by questionable character Brian Doxtator is the actual wording of the Oneida Tribe’s Code of Ethics.

Specifically section 3.3-3 (a) (2) which says:

avoid participation in action or decision making (except where participation is in accordance with the traditions of the Tribe) that would present an appearance of conflict of interest or an actual conflict of interest.

This raises questions for General Tribal Council members who’ve signed the removal petition and those who may be asked to sign it this week:

  • Is it in keeping with Oneida traditions for Chairperson Delgado to recognize community members who provide healing sweat lodge ceremonies by giving them wood to conduct ceremonies?
  • Is it in keeping with Oneida traditions for Chairperson Delgado to try to assist ill Tribe members who are in need in a timely manner in the absence of those who normally supervise the Tribe’s charitable programs?
  • Is it in keeping with Oneida traditions for Chairperson Delgado to seek to save the Tribe money regarding the effort to provide the Oneida community in Milwaukee a quality SEOTS facility?

And the information circulated with the removal petition also raises disturbing questions:

  • Exactly how did Brian Doxtator and his removal petition circulators even know the particulars of the sensitive and confidential information regarding a request made by an ill elder Tribe member in his applications to the Community Support program, as well as the amounts of any assistance provided regarding that Tribe member’s previous request?
  • Is someone in the Community Support program willing to violate the privacy of a Tribe member by providing sensitive and confidential information about elders for the onslaught against Chairperson Delgado?
  • Would that person have any connection to Council member Melinda Danforth’s Executive Assistant Lisa Summers?

Oneida Eye expects that these questions may be answered soon.

In the meantime, GTC members who now feel they were duped into signing the inappropriate removal petition should immediately contact the office of Tribal Secretary Patty Hoeft and ask that their name be stricken from the removal petition if she receives it.

(P.S. Ed Delgado is a dirtbag, as is Brian Doxtator. These charges, however, are bogus.)
