This story is certainly tragic, however it brings a question: Do we prosecute these crimes in Canada? Mexico? Italy? France? Germany? Iceland? heck in China?
Better yet in Puerto Rico? Guam?
Last I recall the lands that the tribes live on are under US Jurisdiction, but a sovereign nation nonetheless. There are several thousands of children that are abused and "unspoken" for that prosecutors can still go after.

Exactly. these tribes ruin local business with unfair competition when they sell w/o a tax, they flaunt all US laws with regard to hiring by expressly using race as a criteria in hiring, they receive ungodly amounts of foriegn aid and then exclude not native Americans from facilities paid for by NM tax dollars, then go "whah" when the American tax payers wont front them a prosecutor. Hey they have courts, judges and prosecutors and have on too many occasions prohibited prosecution of Indians under federal law by invoking their sovereign nation status. No, they cant cry now.(Oh and OMG are they a bunch of cry babies as a group)
Again, they treat the rest of us so unfairly that i have long ago quit doing business with them and urge others to atart doing the same thing.
