Frank LaMere
Frank LaMere, featured prominently in The Battle for Whiteclay, is a member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and a noted social and political activist from South Sioux City, Nebraska. He is generally regarded as the architect of the movement to stop the illegal flow of alcohol from Nebraska onto the dry Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He serves as director of the Four Directions Community Center in Sioux City, Iowa and advises the Casey Alliance there on child welfare matters that impact Native families. He currently chairs the Community Initiative for Native Children and Families (CINCF) in Woodbury County, Iowa and leads the annual Memorial March to Honor Lost Children. He was a principal in the passage of the Iowa Indian Child Welfare Act in 2003. A member of the Democratic National Committee where he sits on the Executive Committee, he chaired the Native Caucus in the last three national conventions as a superdelegate. He is the highest ranking Native American in any party organization. Frank was named Peacemaker of the Year by Nebraskans for Peace in 2001 and was honored by the Nebraska Legislature in 2006 for his work on behalf of Native people. He is the former chair of the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs and the Nebraska Indian Community College. The father of four and the grandfather of nine, he is married to the former Cynthia Rouse of the Yankton Sioux Tribe. His interest in Whiteclay was sparked in 2003 by NFP members who had worked for several years with Frank LaMere and others to address concerns about Nebraska's licensing of alcohol sales in Whiteclay. In early 2003 he was introduced to Mr. LaMere and made his first visit to Whiteclay. He has devoted over five years to filming and reporting on this story.


The Battle For Whiteclay » Opinion

Frank LaMere is an activist and a member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
Frank LaMere Any action short of shutting down Whiteclay and crippling the enterprise that peddles alcohol among the Lakota people is unacceptable. The death toll exacted on the Lakota people by Anheuser-Busch and its partners continues to rise, and the sooner the Sheridan County hell-hole can be leveled the better off Nebraska will be. County, state and liquor industry officials have long known of the lawlessness and illegal activities that go on there, but they have been allowed to run from their responsibilities as public trustees by reducing the sad reality to a discussion about personal responsibility and market demand.

In the Nov. 4 presidential elections, a vast majority of Native people voted for Obama, according to Frank LaMere of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, who led the American Indian delegation to the Democratic Convention.
On the campaign trail in Montana, Obama was adopted as an honorary member of the Crow Tribe, a ceremony that natives say is reserved for special guests. On that occasion, he was given a new name, "Barack Black Eagle."
