The problem is wide spread all over South Dakota not just the west. From taking back reservation lands in eastern SD and selling it for .10 cents an acre to profiting from taking Indian children and placing them in non native foster homes, amounts to the same thing as what the Mission Schools were trying to accomplish. It seems there is no end to the sadness and efforts to eradicate either our existence or the deep seated resentment and belief that Natives get something for nothing. Appears that is a common theme among the far right. Thank you Lise Balk King for this timely story.
