The Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians recently became the third Native American tribe to legalize same-sex marriage.
Tribe member Tim LaCroix, 53, wed partner Gene Barfield, 60, in Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians' first same-sex ceremony. Though Michigan, the state where the Little Traverse Bay Bands tribe resides, does not recognize same-sex marriage, the tribe, along with other U.S. federally recognized tribes are self-governed and aren't subject to state laws.
