Rosebud Sioux Indian at center of battle that spotlights rights of Native Americans

Now he’s fighting tribal authorities who want to ban him from his home because he’s from another tribe.

Authorities say Ironshell has violated a tribal ordinance that prohibits Meskwaki women from sharing a settlement home with men who are not Meskwaki.

Ironshell is a Rosebud Sioux. His wife, Eloise, is Meskwaki. Both say the ban amounts to racial discrimination.
