CRST Chairman gives first State of the Tribes address


Harold Frazier, Chairman of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, gave the first-ever State of the Tribes address to a joint session of the South Dakota Legislature on January 14. Frazier explained that South Dakota is the ancestral homeland of the Seven Council Fires of Dakota, Nakota, and Lakota. He said, “It is time we learn to treat each other with the respect that is deserved, rather than with hatred and racism. Only then can we become nations working together for the health and welfare of our people. All men and women are created equal, and we have a right to freedom and liberty in our homeland. Our rights to self-government are inherent and inalienable—just like yours.”
