A group called Nebraskans for Peace says today they will present evidence to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission that alcohol establishments in Whiteclay are violating the law.

The tiny, 22-member town is located near the South Dakota border and the Pine Ridge Reservation. American Indian activists have protested the sale of liquor in the town, saying businesses exploit Native Americans. As much as $3 million is sold in beer alone.

Some also say the town rightfully belongs to the Sioux tribes, due to the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty.
