Pine Ridge Reservation to Contest Church Closings

According to the Lakota Country Times, people on the Pine Ridge Reservation have hired counsel to contest The Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota's closure of nine churcheson the reservation.

Marvin Smith will represent the group. He said an injunction will be filed against the diocese in tribal court since all the land involved is trust land. The injunction is to halt the closing of the churches and to halt disposition of any land and buildings that are affected. Thirdly, all those involved can come to a settlement that will be satisfactory to both parties.
