Officials from the Oglala Lakota Tribe of South Dakota met with Nebraska Governor Mike Johanns on Monday to discuss sales of liquor in the border town of Whiteclay.

Tribal President John Yellow Bird Steele, welcomed the increase of law enforcement in the town, whose beer establishments primarily serve reservation residents. But he said tribal members are being unfairly targeted as a result.

Johanns said he would investigate the charges.
