Reservations Are Being Targeted With Pro-Trump Vandalism
October 26, 2020
SISSETON, S.D. - Yesterday, a Dakotas for Biden sign was vandalized with the words "Trump 2020 F**k Biden, F**k BLM" circled out on the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate (SWO) Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
The vandalism was noticed yesterday morning by Andrea Eastman, as she traveled on her daily route to and from her father Milton Eastman's residence, which is about five miles out of the City of Sisseton and has a population of 2,426 according to the city's website.
"It's a right-wing deal," Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux tribal member and elder Milton Eastman told Native News Online during a telephone call. "We reported it to the SWO Tribal Police and the City (of Sisseton) Police knowing nothing is going to get done, but we have to document these incidents, so we know that it happened."
