Frank LaMere is a prominent Indian child welfare advocate and director of Four Directions Community Center, a Native nonprofit in Sioux City, Iowa. He called for a federal investigation into South Dakota's foster care system and predicted that this latest situation may become South Dakota's Penn State. "This is a scandal of the highest order," said LaMere.
...
They always have," said LaMere, a member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. He added that tribes share responsibility for the exodus of Native children into care. "Many of our tribal leaders have been lax in protecting our greatest resource-our children."
...
LaMere charged that the Indian children's odyssey through the foster care system as it unfolded in the most recent South Dakota abuse case is not an anomaly.
"As outrageous as it is, it is the sad reality for Native children in South Dakota and around the country," said LaMere.

Winnebago activist Frank LaMere, executive director of Four Directions Community Center, in nearby Sioux City, Iowa, has fought for more than a decade to close down Whiteclay's liquor trade. He called Whiteclay a "hellhole," adding: "The Oglala Lakota relatives bleed to death under the color of law. The free-enterprise mumbo jumbo spewed by [Nebraska officials] serves no purpose other than to reassure good ol' boys and the liquor industry that all is okay as long as the countless victims of murder, rape and exploitation at Whiteclay aren't white."
LaMere said white officials had chided him for saying Nebraska has blood on its hands. "Do I still believe that? he asked rhetorically. "You're damned right I do!"

Politicians and activists have debated stopping the alcohol stream for more than a century, but Whiteclay's remote location - about an hour northeast of Chadron - makes the issue easy to ignore, said Frank LaMere, longtime Indian activist and director of the Four Directions Community Center .
"It's out of sight, out of mind," he said.
...
LaMere said continued public pressure is crucial to force a government solution.
"[Whiteclay] is one of the worst cases of human rights violations in this country and we fail to see it because it's hard to look at," he said. "Good people sit on their hands, good people wring their hands, and good people remain oblivious to what happens there. We as Nebraskans are better than this."
The Concert for Whiteclay Awareness is Sept. 19, 6 p.m. at the Countryside Community Church, 8787 Pacific St. For more, call 659.6175.
