Robinson to leave Tribal Liaison position; Blasts Legislature and State for disrespect of Tribal peoples
(Riverton, Wyo.) – Eastern Shoshone Tribal Liaison Sara Robinson told the Select Committee on Tribal Relations today that she is leaving her position to join the Fremont County Attorney’s Office as a juvenile prosecutor. Robinson said the primary reason for her departure was the disrespect she was shown as a woman, and moreso as a Tribal woman, in that position, from the Governor on down including members of the State Legislature. Robinson said the liaisons have dealt with a number of frustrating issues and she called for the liaison system to be restructured.
