Lakota people come together in times of need


For the last two weeks our entire community has been engulfed in worry as we were forced to contemplate what may or may not have happened to the three men who went missing since Saturday, May 7, 2016. As most of us have learned, their bodies were found inside of a vehicle that preliminary reports are saying drove off a 50-ft cliff that sits next to the White River located southwest of Oglala and northwest of Pine Ridge.

There are still many questions to be asked and Lakota Country Times made the decision on the night of the incident to wait until we knew that the family members were made aware of the discovery prior to releasing anything official. The same cannot be said for local TV stations and one national Native news site who chose to publish the news online. We understand that there is a need to get information out in a timely manner but unlike our competitors we know the families involved and out of simple respect for them we opted to wait.
