OST council mulls LNI boycott move
In protest over the beer incident, The Oglala Sioux Tribal Council's Education Committee voted this month to bar tribal organizations such as the housing authority from taking part in LNI.
Last winter the tribe pressed LNI's board to move its December basketball tournament and cultural expo out of Rapid City.
The call came after beer was spilled on Lakota grade school students at a Civic Center hockey game in January. The LNI board voted to stay put but the controversy over the racially tinged incident refuses to die down.
