Jeffrey Whalen: Oglala Sioux leaders give themselves more money for travel


On Thursday, July 19, 2018, the Oglala’s finance committee took action to increase the tribal council travel rate for themselves and the executive committee and are attempting to add $15,000.00 to that budget. It would be a total of $375,000.00 for the increase in a one (1) year time frame. Because we have two-year election cycles, this will mean the increase would be $750,000.00.

Also, there is a spreadsheet circulating on Pine Ridge that addresses some proposed changes in tribal council travel if the constitutional amendments are approved. This article will address the two issues of council travel increases and proposed changes to the council budget.
