This story seems sensationalized and under-reported. It feels like a portrait of a landscape as seen through a car window and a phone call.

Kudos for talking about life on the reservation, but where's the newsworthy factor? I feel like this story could be fuller--not bigger--but maybe more developed.

And, not to be overly critical, I'm not sure about the word settlement in the headline. The Lakota have been around the Black Hills much longer than Chicago has been a city, and if my facts are right, the government dictated where the Sioux could live around 20 years after Chicago was founded.

[There are not enough pledged delegates at stake in Montana and South Dakota to put Obama over the top, but a rush of endorsements by the remaining undeclared "superdelegates" could allow him to claim victory when he takes the stage in Minnesota Tuesday evening.]
