Sioux nickname group says it has enough signatures for public vote
Spirit Lake supporters of UND's Fighting Sioux nickname say they have gathered enough signatures needed to put the issue on the ballot during the tribe's general election in May.
Eunice Davidson, one of the supporters, said Thursday she alone has gathered 226 signatures and there are 11 other volunteers who have also gathered signatures.
The number needed, she said, is 160, which is 20 percent of the 799 votes cast in the last general election in 2007.
