In the wake of the Haiti disaster, this dangerous situation right here at home seems to have suffered from a dearth of coverage.

Here follows an update regarding the situation, which is more serious than originally anticipated:


Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe (CRST) is in midst of an emergency disaster that could potentially last for another 10 - 27 more days. They have been out of Power and Water since Thursday (Jan. 21st). They are in need of many supplies and volunteer efforts.

They relocated all the Dialysis Patients to Rapid City and Pine Ridge. They are staying in Hotels. Some of the Tribal Members have relocated to surrounding Cities and are staying in Hotels.

Wakpa Sica Reconciliation Place is collecting donations to send to CRST. If you would like to donate supplies, please drop them off at 709 West Fort Chouteau Road, Fort Pierre, (Along North Highway 1806 - where the Big Tipis are). Or call (605) 223-9099 or email:
