Nebraska Governor Mike Johanns and law enforcement authorities on Tuesday said they are expecting peaceful protests in Whiteclay this week.

Oglala Lakota and other activists will be holding marches to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the deaths of two Lakota men. Their deaths are still unsolved.

Protests are also being held over the sale of liquor to residents of the nearby Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Liquor establishments sell 4 million cans of beer a year, mostly to Indian clients.
