(S.D.)-Dakotas Tribes Settle Claims With Fed Government

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 11/26/2012 06:38 AM
     MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - Four tribes in the Dakotas have recently received more than $100 million through settlements with the federal government.
     The money is for claims that the government mismanaged tribal money and trust lands. The federal government is paying more than $1 billion to dozens of tribes across the country.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota and South Dakota is getting $49 million. In South Dakota, the Rosebud Sioux are getting $20 million, the Lower Brule Sioux $18 million and the Crow Creek Sioux $14.5 million.
     The settlements are separate from a trust funds lawsuit involving individual members of tribes across the country.
