FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE:

STATEMENT ON NEGATIVE FACEBOOK PUBLICITY USING THE
NAME OF THE OGLALA SIOUX TRIBE AND/OR OGLALA LAKOTA
NATION BY INDIVIDUALS OF FACEBOOK GROUP “HIT”
(HOSTILE INDAN TRIBES) WHICH IS MODERATED BY NUMEROUS
INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE OGLALA
SIOUX TRIBAL GOVERNMENT!
**********************************************************************

PINE RIDGE INDIAN RESERVATION - The Oglala Sioux Tribe would like to
issue a statement to the general public and media regarding the
negative
FACEBOOK publicity using the name of the Oglala Sioux Tribe and/or
Oglala Lakota Nation by individuals of FACEBOOK group “HIT” (Hostile
Indian Tribes) which is moderated by numerous individuals who are not
affiliated with the Oglala Sioux Tribal Government.

The Oglala Sioux Tribe has received telephone calls and emails from
numerous concerned citizens that are upset by the postings which seem
to be specifically about the recent shootings in Rapid City, South
Dakota and is being spread as though it is the Oglala Sioux Tribe
“talking” which has caused not only controversy and confusion, but
highlights negative language and misrepresentation of the Lakota
people
and the Oglala Nation as a whole.

In fact, the Oglala Sioux Tribe Judiciary Committee sent a star-quilt
and card of condolence which was presented to the Rapid City Police
Department and signed by members of the Oglala Sioux Tribal Council.
The Oglala Sioux Tribe recently played host to United States Attorney
General Eric Holder and 31 United States Attorney’s from throughout
the
United States to address Law Enforcement Issues and to mark the 1
year
signing of the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 which was signed into
law by President Barack Obama.

The Oglala Sioux Tribe remains committed to providing adequate Law
and
Order on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation as well as continued work
with
the Rapid City Police Department. Rapid City Police Chief Steve
Allender
visited last year with various Officers from the Rapid City Police
Department during an Oglala Sioux Tribal Council meeting to commit
working
with the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety.

The Oglala Sioux Tribe wishes to extend our prayers to the two (2)
Officers
who lost their lives in the line of duty and would like to publicly
disapprove these radical individuals and/or groups who are not
authorized
to use the Oglala Sioux Tribe, Oglala Lakota Nation or the Tribal
Membership
in their words of hate and remorse for actions that could not be
controlled
by anybody!
