Welcome to the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council’s Internet broadcast.
Broadcast is subject to Council agenda items. For more information, please contact the Rosebud Sioux Tribe at 605-747-2381.
Thank you for watching!
I sit on Social Services Committee and i do not remember passing this resolution for Council approval… i attend all our meetings…hmmm interesting. i must of been sleeping.. :/
I have a granddaughter who is not 1/4 why shouldn’t she be enrolled. This causes confusion in our young people. Her great great grandfather brought back the message of the Ghost Dance. I was taught to be proud of my Lakota Heritage, I want my children proud and they want to teach this to their children. It will hurt her if one of our people tell her she is not a Lakota. Some of you talking on here have children and one day you will have a takoja from them but they might not be a quarter. How will you feel then. If I am a Lakota then my daughter can say it to. Wasicu’s decided this method of blood quantum. As a sovereign nation we can determine this for ourselves. As a people we make decisions. As a Lakota person I say proof of being a descendant is all you need. Identity is an issue, tribal law is fact. Make it fact that this kind of proof is all you need. A lot of people need that sacred piece of their spirit healed in knowing who they are and feeling like they belong and being accepted by their relatives.
I believe that you should post the names of the Tribal Council Representatives that are present. The people need to know who is not at duly called meetings.
hau, it is right that names should be taken. it is power to be informed, to know who and why. foralways there are those who pretend to seek truth and rightiousness for one and then another when it’s only for themselves and each other. quentin provincial
I believe that the Law(police) and Order(court) employees should be present at this conf call. I hope this is not business as usual.
May i join your tribe
For more information on enrolling in the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, please call 605.747.2381 and ask for the Enrollment Department.
You have to prove you are a descendant before you can “join” our tribe…the nerve :/
that was uncalled for,
are u sioux?
It is sad that the Tribal Administration and Council are dancing around the Tribal Constitution and By-Laws concerning the enforcement of the changes that the “Tribal Members” approved. They need to uphold their Oath of Office and move forward. Maybe someone should start a remove action, especially the members who have pending enrollments that have been tabled.
Has the enrollment issues been corrected or is it still on going? I don’t understand what the issue is?
we need to keep our enrollment to 1/4 and above . As it is all them new Indians now get our school money and go to our hospital. keep enrolling only true Lakota people
People should not be allowed to swear in the tribal council chambers. And that is why our children do not know any respect.
Total truth! why fight amongst another, can’t get along with the children, talk about whats truly business and leave your unsica thoughts elsewhere! or we can’t be saying i am going home, one day!
just where do these comments go, as I never see or hear of any feed back. The Tribal Council needs to see these comments, then they will know that the Tribal Members actually watch the meetings. Going into executive sessions is also getting out of control.
Who robbed the Turtle Creek Crossing Market? How much money was stolen? The rumor is that it was an inside job and that whoever did it had the keys to the door and knew the combination to the safe. How many people have been given the combination to the safe and keys to the door? Why is there a COMPLETE MEDIA BLACKOUT ON THIS CRIME? The oyate have a right to know what is going on with the resources of our tribe! What happened to transparency and accountability? or are those just words the RST President throws around during election time?

There was no Media Blackout.
I think that your staff should setup a password system for enrolled members of the tribe, maybe use our enrollment number, as I believe that we should be able to view our council in session, except for personnel matters. Thank You. Beanie
AGAIN, MEDIA BLACKOUT.
WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE PEOPLES GOVERNMENT?
I believe it is time for the RST Administration and RST Council to put the people first. The only thing that has changed from 2005 to 2011 is the rate of pay for the governing body.
In 2005 the salary for the RST President was $60,000.00.
In 2012 the salary for the RST President is $100,000.00.
In 2005 a member of the RST Council made $30,000.00 per member X 20 = $600,000.00.
In 2012 the rate of pay for a RST Council member increased to $47,250.00 Per member X 20 = $950,000.00
Where did they get the $400,000.00 to give themselves a raise?
Last I heard the casino is not performing as well as it once was (and it is hocked up to it’s neck in loans).
We all know Turtle Creek Crossing (which was built for approximately $10,000.000.00) is not doing well.
The Swenson’s Gas Station the RST turned into Sicangu Auto has been CLOSED since it was bought for $300,000.00.
The Frontier Bar the RST purchased For $300,000.00 sits empty. SO
Where did RST President and Council get the $400,000.00 to pay for their raise? AND what justification do they have for these raises? Last I heard they still have 3 meetings a month and most of them don’t even show up for council meetings (watch it on tv or the internet, they’re lucky to get 11 out of 20)
Again, I believe the people are forgotten in all of this.
Sure is good that we have so many engineers sitting on the council who know so much about water and sewer.
Why does our tribe give out per cap too it’s people??? Wtf
Regardless of the complaining I see I am thankful I can see this on the internet. I do not live at home for I have been in school for quite some time, before school I was in the military, before the military it was Job Corps. Last time i went home I did nothing but get in trouble with the law. I plan to come home and to try and make a difference.
I found this by chance and I am glad I got to watch this live. This is awesome to see and whoever did this livecast deserves alot of thanks. It was nearly 26 years ago when I sat in those chairs as a little hoksila when my father Eugene LeRoy Sr. was on the council. Now I know what he goes through in politics. I have taken the exact same path he has.
I am listening to the Council Meeting, and the topic jumps from one topic to another, someone talks about one thing, and someone else interupts and talks about another topic, and then back tot he previous topic. I am confused, we are talking about lemon laws, brothers car held hostage, council rep car is ruined due to road, etc. etc. …#confused
It is the duty of the President to maintain order and to keep the meeting moving forward in an orderly fashion. If and when the discussion goes off subject he or any member of the council can call for a “point of order” and the President must return the meeting to the topic of discussion on the floor. Sometimes I think they lose sight of this or simply choose not to enforce it.
Any meeting minutes that list the challenges, define characteristics of projects, fundamental tasks done on time, within budget, and according to specifications?
I’m having trouble with sound. Picture is good but no sound just scratching noise.
Video & audio is ok for the live VC. Would have liked 16:9 720p HD rather
than 4:3 for quality video. Could not determine if the audio was mono or 2.1.
Preference would be 5.1 surround for faithfully reproducing the sound field.
Omg we are just glad we get to finally see it on tv and on the internet. Who cares that it is not in high definition or in 5.1 surround sound. Just say thank you it took a lot just to finally get a camera in there and I think most of us our happy with that.
Who was the man in the short-sleeved shift and ballcap who spoke prior to this? I thought I heard Dennis Clabo??
Awesome site you have here but I was curious if you
knew of any forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get responses from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
Do you have past meetings and/or forums archived anywhere or are they only live?
TOO MANY EXECUTIVE SESSIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is a very good idea.. shows interest that you truly care and no one has to leave home to get real facts..i am glad you started this.. because if i get in to pine ridge as a tribal government official i like this to same exact way… our Lakota never should have to suffer.
When is next live broadcast…and if u miss it…is there some place else we can view past mtgs..
i like watching the meeting on the internet it is a great thing for people who don’t have a vehicle can just log on to their computer and pull up the tribes website and view the meeting from there. So Good Job Rosebud Sioux Tribe and also to the Tribal President Good Job at least you tired and hey not everyone is going to like what the tribal president does but he can’t fire everyone and run the tribe by him self until he finds need people to work a regular 8-5 job and get’s stuff done and don’t leave early!! there are still people that are trying to get information about tribal programs but the the tribe closes at 4:30 everyday
That would be the article have spelling, stylistic, or to specify that your address bar method.
check this link right here now
So if your on the clock you can sit in council with your kin?? Seems like Barb C. sure enjoys her time off from work on the tribes dime.
Thank you Lydia whirlwind soldier for. Doing such wonderful job leading our tribe into the 21st century. Also Dr. George whirlwind soldier for working your entire life with the Lakota peoples health. We need more of your honesty and hard work within our tribal gov. Lydia should run for our tribal president.
