In a special feature, The Lincoln Journal Star takes a look back at almost two years history in the reservation border town of Whiteclay, Nebraska.

With regard to the deaths of two Oglala Lakota men from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, both are still unsolved. The FBI is investigating the case and no arrests have been made.

Nebraska state police have increased presence in the area but Lakota activist Tom Poor Bear says their actions are unfairly targeted Indians. Citations issued by police are usually for misdemeanor offenses such as trespassing, public drinking, and possesion of an open container of alcohol.

Some beer store owners have been cited, according to the state patrol, but a spokesperson couldn't name any to The Journal Star for the article.

Poor Bear and three panelists told high-school students of the problems reservation residents face.
