How cool is that? Because the tribe is a sovereign nation, it is not bound by Oregon's constitution which says "marriage" is between a man and a woman. This tribe has decided to extend all tribal benefits of marriage to any couple of whom at least one is Coquille. They are the first tribe to pass such a law. The Cherokee and Navajo have passed laws banning gay marriage. The Coquilles anticipate some tests when the Defense of Marriage act comes into play. I am happy for them. Score 10 tolerance points for the Coquille natives!
