well, another election come and gone, votes bought. All the people who got money probably don't know the tribes getting sued for 2.2 million. Tribal employees hauling pot while doing tribal work. What a message this sends to our youth. selective drug testing, none done on tribal secretarys or all tribal employees, LBEE, casino. No enforcement of TERO. We just as well put non-members on the council, they run most programs anyway. Popcorn plant is a money pit. what happened to the 1 million fron Shakopee for it, white guy running it don't know what hes doing.

Where can we find out more about this $2.2M lawsuit? Who is suing the tribe and for what? Is that why all the votes were bought to keep the old council in, so the tribal members won't find out. Why is EVERYTHING secret from the tribal members!!!?

The 2.2 million dollar lawsuit is just the tip of the iceberg. It's unbelieveable to me that the council does these press releases bragging about how well our business enterprises are doing and what great things they have done for the people and yet nothing has changed in Lower Brule in 20 years. I take that back: less children graduating from the high school every year.(most of the ones that do read at a 8th grade level) absolutely no economic development unless it's controlled by the tribe. So no new business or job opportunities. A housing crisis that is only getting worse. Oh and who needs health care when your already dead!?!? The drugs and alcohol are destroying our people and nothing is being done about that either. The dry anything never worked before what makes you think it will work now. Just didn't want anyone from Lower Brule to make a living selling it. Who needs a court system? get rid of it you got the council. That would save tons on salaries. Everyday the council is making dealings behind close doors with our names on it and the only ones there looking out for are themselves and their families. A person could go on for days about the illegal shit that goes on here but nobody cares the middle class americans paying taxes so we can get free money through all those federal programs don't know it's just being used to benefit a greedy few. Its being mis-used and stolen and even the ones issueing it don't care. Where is our justice? Where are our civil rights? Who is the watch dog if it isn't the Federal Government?
