Terry Lente Steps Down as President
Terry Lente was serving as the President of the Task Force for Tribal Membership. This group wants to lower the blood quantum from one-half to one-quarter. This would require a vote to amend the Isleta Tribal Constitution. Lowering the blood quantum would enable descendents with at least one-quarter Isleta Indian blood to become members of the Pueblo.
Terry Lente, however, has stepped down as President. She requested that I post her letter to the community on Isleta Pueblo Politics. To read her letter, click it:
