Haskell endowment group votes to disband in protest of Warner

Haskell Indian Nations University President Linda Warner has come under fire numerous times in her short tenure.

I think the President of that Foundation Board is the same Ms Mitchell who talked her tribal executive council into writing a resolution against President Warner so she could make the headlines last summer. And She is the same Ms Mitchell that the Four Tribes of Kansas, who appoint the regent, summarily replaced. And, I think, she is the same Ms Mitchell that the Pottawattamie nation overwhelmingly voted against for fiscal mismanagement. So she no longer represents anyone ...except herself. And didn't Matt Warren resign as attorney to Haskell's Board of Regents after he failed to maintain their independent status as a corporation in Kansas?

The spin is inaccurate but used to divert attention away from questions or investigaqtion of the Warner regime. If this was a real university she would have left after the no confidence vote by the regents, students and faculty. Now the endowment board dissolves because she can't work with these professionals, but the problem is with the board and not her. BIA support for incompetence, fiscall mismanagment and leaders like Waner is why Indian people never get ahead.

The Haskell Endowment Association was illegally tied to a federal agency. They disbanded before the Inspector General came after each of them.

Who actually raised the money they had in their bank account? None of those board members ever contributed a dime. Fact. Hardly a group that espouses they want Haskell to succeed. Compare their efforts to any other university endowment foundation. In an anniversary year, we see Indian board members teamed up with others who must still believe in the boarding school mentality.
