On Monday, April 23, 2012 a group of Ihanktonwan (Yankton) tribal members will listen to their appeal to a Charles Mix Co Judge to deny a commercial water permit to the unwelcome Longview Farms CAFO. The tribal members believe that the CAFO is attempting to violate tribal water rights use and welcomes prayers for the outcome of the preservation of our sacred waters.  Court is at 2:30 pm at Chas Mix Co Courthouse, Lake Andes, SD.  The tribal members are being represented by Tracey Zephier, tribal attorney.
The tribal group has urged the tribe not to give up, even though the tribe wished not to appeal through previous counsel.  The tribal members are Sharon Drapeau, (deceased elder Evelyn Blackmoon), Faith Spotted Eagle, Judy Honomichle, Allan Hare, Kip Spotted Eagle Collins, Glenn Drapeau and Eva Bruigier. Four years ago to the date of April 23, protesters were mass arrested and taken to jail when they tried to defend a tribal road.
After national coverage and an intervention filed in the UN, the county backed off and dropped the charges on the protesters.  The water wars have begun!!!  We need your support.  It is ironic that court is the same day, years later after the arrests.
Contact Faith Spotted Eagle at eagletrax@hotmail.com for questions or on facebook.  Wopida.
