Spirit Lake Tribe declares a state of emergency


In response to a wide-spread, mounting problem on the reservation the leaders of the Spirit Lake Nation have taken a bold stand by declaring a “state of emergency” on Friday, Aug. 21.

According to Nancy Greene-Robertson who serves on the Spirit Lake Nation Tribal Council in the dual role of Secretary-Treasurer, this is one of many steps to come in the battle against illegal drug use, abuse and trafficking on the Spirit Lake Nation.

“It has become an epidemic and the tribe is determined to do whatever it takes to address it within our borders,” Greene-Robertson said.
