The Oglala Sioux Tribe late Thursday issued a NOTICE seeking the attendance of family members of the victims.
Mr. Johnson will meet with Oglala Sioux Tribal officials next Wednesday, June 13, at 1 pm, mdt, at the Little Wound School in Kyle, South Dakota.

We must restore hope in our communities. When justice finally prevails, proper grieving can begin so the healing process can take place,”
commented James Toby Big Boy, chairman of the Oglala Sioux Tribe's Law and Order Committee.
