FILE--Colley Billie, chairman of the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida, left, talks with Miami Springs photographer Robert Holmes about how he created the "Gigapixel Panorama" photograph of downtown Miami at night, during the inaugural West End Art Fair on Saturday, April 18, 2015, in Miami's Kendall community. Billie and his wife, Consuelo Billie, second from left, were among hundreds of visitors to the inaugural West End Art Fair. The tribe’s general council voted Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015, to remove Billie, who has two years remaining in his second term, as he attempted to settle the nasty legal battle with the Internal Revenue Service and started to withhold taxes from casino gambling distributions to some 600 members — a step the IRS demanded in legal action.
