March 29, 2024

PIERRE, S.D.–Governor Kristi Noem has written to Oglala Sioux Tribe President Frank Star Comes Out and requested a meeting with him, tribal councilmembers, and his people.

She requested the meeting to discuss challenges that his community faces and her call for an audit of federal dollars going to South Dakota’s nine Native American tribes.

Noem says, “the Biden Administration is not funding law enforcement on tribal reservations. This results in rising violence and drug addiction.

She says the people on tribal reservations deserve safe communities.
