Tribal leaders to meet with US Attorney in South Dakota
Tribal leaders in South Dakota will meet with U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson on Thursday.

Johnson wants to hear from tribes about crime and law enforcement in Indian Country. Oglala Sioux Tribe President Theresa Two Bulls said the federal government can make a lot of improvements.

"I'm hoping that he listens to us, that he really takes back what we have to say to his office and to his higher-ups," Two Bulls told The Rapid City Journal.

Johnson, who serve as chair of the Native American Issues Subcommittee at the Department of Justice, is the son of Sen. Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota), a member of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee.
