SD Congress Members Share Thoughts On Gov. Noem’s Tribal Banishments

(Pierre, SD) — South Dakota Senators John Thune and Mike Rounds, along with Representative Dusty Johnson, are all speaking out for the first time on Governor Noem’s tribal banishments from the state’s Native reservations. Thune said Noem needs to create some actual dialogue with the state’s tribal leadership for anything to improve. Rounds noted the ongoing stalemate between the governor and Native tribes is not good for both the state and tribal residents, adding there needs to be mutual respect. Johnson feels caught in the middle, having relationships on both sides and recommends that working together is the best solution.
