South Dakota governor threatens Native American tribes with legal action if they do not remove coronavirus checkpoints

Recommended Posts

Hint to Ms Noem...these tribes are Sovereign Nations...they don't answer to governors. 👌

 

The governor of South Dakota has issued ultimatums to two Sioux Native American tribes to remove travel checkpoints on state and US highways aimed at protecting themselves from the coronavirus.

 

Governor Kristi Noem sent letters to the Oglala Sioux Tribe and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe on Friday requesting that they remove the checkpoints surrounding their reservations within 48 hours or “the state will take necessary legal action”.

 

“We are strongest when we work together; this includes our battle against Covid-19,” the governor said. “I request that the tribes immediately cease interfering with or regulating traffic on US and State Highways and remove all travel checkpoints.”

 

But the letters prompted a stern response Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Chairman Harold Frazier, who declined the request. In a statement, he said he “absolutely agreed” it was necessary for everyone to work together.

 

“However, you continuing to interfere in our efforts to do what science and facts dictate seriously undermines our ability to protect everyone on the reservation,” he said. “Ignorant statements and fiery rhetoric encourage individuals already under stress from this situation to carry out irrational actions.”

 

He cited Article 16 of the 1868 Ft. Laramie Treaty for why his tribe could issue travel restrictions onto the reservation.

 

“I stand with our elder Councilman Ed Widow the purpose of our action is to, ‘save lives rather than save face,’” he said, declining the governor's request to remove checkpoints.

 

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe said on its Facebook page that the checkpoints were aimed at protecting all residents from the virus.

 

The checkpoints do not stop residents on the reservation travelling to other parts of South Dakota as long as they’re not Covid-19 “hotspots”, it said. Travel is also allowed for essential activity like getting medical supplies and other necessary items. Everyone must fill out a health questionnaire before leaving and upon their return.

 

South Dakota residents who don’t live on the reservation are only allowed to visit if it is for essential activity and they are not coming from a hotspot. They, too, must fill out a health questionnaire.

 

If someone from a South Dakota hotspot wants to travel to the reservation for essential travel, they must first fill out a travel permit on the tribe’s website.

 

Ms Noem claimed the tribes are required to consult the state government and reach an agreement before closing and restricting travel on state and US highways, citing a US Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) memorandum.

 

Native Americans are more susceptible to Covid-19 because they have disproportionately higher rates of asthma, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.

 

They also have a difficult history with deadly viruses. An estimated 90 percent of tribal people were wiped out by smallpox and other viruses brought to the Americas by European settlers. Native Americans being hit four times harder than the general public during the 1918 Spanish Flu, according to a 2014 study in the American Indian Quarterly.

 

One member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe has reportedly died from Covid-19 while in federal prison. South Dakota has more than 3,100 confirmed cases and 31 people have died.

How about checking out Trump's bone spurs?

How about checking his promise to reveal his tax forms if he was elected?

Off topic...this thread is about the Cornavirus and Native American tribe's authority to enforce rules on their reservations.  😄

Biden';s five deferments are also off topic, and I was responding to Z09's post.

I read this story yesterday.

I don't understand her reasoning on this.  We need to wait and get her side of this thing.  The left is just so bias.

They just want to throw eggs and block rational thought.   Noem is a good woman.   We just need more info.                       🍺

OK...but what about Biden's five deferments anyway?

 

You've been asked about it elsewhere too but ran from the question.

What is your evidence she's a good woman?  She seems to be in way over her head.

S. Dakota never shut down.

They didn't need to.  Noem took a lot of heat.  She stood strong like a rock in a storm.  This Indian Reservation

thing is call the "fort mentality".  Nobody in--nobody out.   I knew this was coming.   Not just Indians. 

A whole bunch of groups are thinking about it.  There is strong logic to it.  We not know Noem reasoning yet.

"Noem cited an April memo from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs in her letters that says tribes must enter into an agreement with the state government before restricting travel on U.S. highways."

    I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • By kfools

    Where does it say 2?

    So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • By teacher

    How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now.
