Oglala Sioux council banishes non-member with COVID-19 from reservation


April 10, 2020

The Oglala Sioux tribal council voted Wednesday evening to banish a non-member from the Pine Ridge Reservation after she contracted COVID-19.

“For an individual to leave the reservation going to one of the major hot spots where this virus is and then come back is just uncalled for,” President Julian Bear Runner said on KILI radio after the emergency session. “It was negligent that this individual would still leave after laws were already in place not just tribally, but nationally and globally.”
