MichiganA Native American tribe in Michigan has voted to legalize marriage equality within their borders, The Seattle Times reports:

The Petoskey News-Review reports that the legislative body of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians made the decision Sunday. The tribe is based in Harbor Springs. The 5-4 vote in favor of recognizing same-sex marriage sends the statue to the tribal chairman, who can either sign or veto it. The tribal council would need seven votes to override a veto.

The same tribe considered it last year but didn’t pass it into law.
