CRST to take Noem’s plan into consideration

Responding to a letter from Gov. Kristi Noem proposing a three-part plan for tribal health safety checkpoints, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Chairman Harold Frazier said on May 13 that he appreciates Noem’s concern about preventing the spread of the coronavirus on the reservation and that the tribe “will take (the) three-point plan into consideration.”

The week before, Noem threatened the Cheyenne River and Oglala Sioux tribes with legal action if they refused to remove their checkpoints on state and U.S. highways within 48 hours. That time limit came and went with no suit being filed and the checkpoints remaining in place.

The proposed plan includes no tribal checkpoints on U.S./State highways, checkpoints acceptable on tribal and BIA roads, and reasonable tribal checkpoint accommodations must be available.

USDA announces financial assistance for ag producers

On Tuesday, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced details of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), which will provide up to $16 billion in direct payments to deliver relief to farmers and ranchers impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to direct support to ag producers, USDA’s Farmers to Families Food Box program is partnering with regional and local distributors, whose workforces have been significantly impacted by the closure of many restaurants, hotels, and other food service entities, to purchase $3 billion in fresh produce, dairy, and meat and deliver boxes to Americans in need.

Beginning May 26, the Farm Service Agency (FSA) will be accepting applications from agricultural producers who have suffered losses.

Tribe defies governor, checkpoints remain in place

Tribe defies governor, checkpoints remain in place

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe (CRST) and Oglala Sioux Tribe are defying Gov. Kristi Noem’s demand that they remove health safety checkpoints set up at reservation borders to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and they appear poised for a legal battle with the state if necessary.

After saying two weeks ago that her biggest concern regarding the checkpoints is the understanding that emergency services and supplies must have access to the reservations, Noem on Friday threatened to take the two tribes to federal court if they don’t remove the checkpoints, which have been in place on CRST since late March.
