Noem is Banned from the Pine Ridge Reservation

Gov. Kristi Noem is once again banned from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

The Oglala Sioux Tribe has banished the Republican governor from its territory following remarks she made earlier this week in an address to the state Legislature in which she said Mexican drug cartels are operating on tribal lands, specifically saying that “Ghost Dancers” are affiliated with those criminal organizations.

“I and the Oyate are deeply offended that you alleged the “Ghost Dancers” are affiliated with these cartels,” OST President Frank Star Comes Out said in a statement issued by the tribe Friday, referring to claims by the governor that murders in the Rapid City area stems from the cartel activity, including a gang called the “Ghost Dancers”
