Lakota Voice 'Rosebud Sioux Tribe counts first coup on megaloads'

Rosebud Sioux Tribe Counts First Coup on Megaloads

Lakota Voice
Tonight, a small number of Sicangu Lakota Tribal members took a stand against the megaloads rolling through reservation lands. Lakota Voice arrived, after being passed by one megaload headed north on Highway 83, a common thoroughfare for semi-trucks traveling from Nebraska.
Gary Dorr, a part of the Oyate Wahacanka Woecun – Shielding the People, and enrolled member of the Nez Perce, was on the scene at the Rosebud Casino gas station. Darwin Spotted Tail, Dustin Running Horse and other members of the Sicangu Lakota Oyate monitored the situation until the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Police arrived.
