Political leaders target tribes with unfounded claims

With no supporting information, Gov. Kristi Noem (R-South Dakota) claimed tribal leaders in her state are "personally benefiting" from the presence of drug cartels.

And while campaigning for re-election, Gov. Kevin Stitt (R-Oklahoma) warned about tribes setting up "abortion-on-demand" clinics to subvert the state's new abortion laws. No Oklahoma tribe expressed any intention of setting up clinics.

Join Native America Calling to examine the fallout from such unfounded claims by high-ranking officials and what recourse tribal officials have to counter them.
