July 1, 2010: I visited Camp White Earth yesterday with friends…. I regret to inform you that Camp White Earth, as we knew it, does not exit. All the buildings have been razed and the construction of the new “Rediscovery Center” has begun. The buildings of the old camp were in sad shape…. Hopefully, good things will be happening there and it will be a center piece for the Tribe. Guy Hatlie.
December 28, 2012: During the past several months we have lost some old friends…. I have been notified of the passing of Charles Kubes, Bill Sherman, and Jerry Fladeland. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the greater circle of their families and friends.
