Last week, the Oglala Sioux Tribe passed South Dakota’s first marriage equality law. Two days later, our Law and Order Committee forwarded a resolution to the tribal council requesting adoption of a hate crime measure that would ensure that all our tribal citizens can enjoy safety, security, and equality on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
Chase Iron Eyes interviews Oglala Sioux Tribe members Felipa De Leon and Monique “Muffie” Mousseau after OST’s passage of the first same-sex marriage law in South Dakota. The tribal council will also vote soon on a hate crime ordinance for Pine Ridge.
Wopila — Thank you for your solidarity!
