The Lakota People's Law Project is committed to providing an accurate and updated account of all the developments in South Dakota. Due to the state's geographic isolation, many important stories are not reported outside of particular cities. In this ongoing series of special reports, we are striving to inform and engage a national debate based on factual information.
