By a unanimous vote, SWO Tribal Council adopted the following resolution, joining four other South Dakota tribes banning Governor Kristi Noem from their reservations:

WHEREAS, Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota has made statements and undertaken actions that have been injurious towards the parents of tribal children, thus detracting from the value of their education; and

WHEREAS, Governor Noem's words and actions have undermined the authority and efforts of the Tribal Council of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate in combating the prevailing drug epidemic, thereby affecting the welfare and sovereignty of our Tribal Nation; and For more on this story and many more please purchase a copy of the Sisseton Courier on news stands now or purchase a copy of the E-edtion on this website.
