Editorial: Dialogue needed between tribes, officials

"Last Saturday's summit meeting between South Dakota tribal leaders and the state's congressional delegation is a good start on opening a dialogue among the state's federal and tribal representatives.

So much of tribal government and programs are linked with the federal government or run by federal agencies, it makes sense to have direct talks between tribal leaders and the state's congressional delegation.

We are hopeful that the talks continue, eventually including more open and public dialogue, and achieve positive results for Indian people, on and off the reservations."
