Oglala Sioux Tribe reinstates suspended councilor


PINE RIDGE –– After an hours-long hearing before the Oglala Sioux Tribal Council, Wakpamni District Tribal Council Representative, Jackie Siers, was reinstated after being suspended in early August.

According to her testimony on Wednesday, Sept. 31, the complaints were brought against her and Sonia Little Hawk-Weston by OST Treasurer Melanie Two Eagle-Black Bull after a “heated confrontational Finance Committee Meeting between myself and the treasurer and Sonia Little Hawk-Weston” on July 21, 2016.

Allegations of retaliation, corruption, slander and threats of violence have been at the core of this heated debate between the OST Treasurer and Wakpamni District Representative, although, this “overpayment issue was already resolved last administration by the OST Ethic Committee,” according to Siers’ statement during the hearing.
