Kaweah Indian Nation is expected to take the stand this week in his
federal trial in Wichita.

Attorneys for Malcolm Webber begin their defense Tuesday and are
expected to put Webber on the stand.

Webber's charged with selling memberships to legal and illegal
immigrants around the country by falsely claiming the membership
would make them U.S. citizens.
