CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The Northern Arapaho Business Council has decided to dissolve the Shoshone and Arapaho Joint Business Council.

The joint council provided a forum for communication between the two tribes that share the Wind River Reservation.

But Northern Arapaho officials say the panel created barriers to the tribe’s economic development and often wasted time.

The Northern Arapaho Business Council says it will maintain communication with the Eastern Shoshone on all other committees and boards on which members of both tribes serve.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1nP1mHz ) that the Eastern Shoshone Business Council says it does not recognize the dissolution of the joint business council.

The Shoshone Business Council said it will ask the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs to operate on behalf of the Northern Arapaho in joint tribal affairs.
