“Regulators from the State of New York and other states lack the authority to regulate legal commerce engaged by members of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation,†said Steve Emery, founder of the Emery Law Firm in Eagle Butte and a spokesman for Western Sky Financial. “The consequence of this groundless overreach is the loss of 94 quality jobs in this economically disadvantaged community.â€

"The need for Oyate Teca Owicakiya is clear," says Steve Emery, director of the Sicangu Policy Institute at Sinte Gleska University."We know that kids who abuse alcohol and drugs are more likely to behave violently, break the law, or end up in court.We also know that alcohol and drug abuse is a major health problem among juvenile offenders on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation."
According to a recent local study, 92 percent of Rosebud Sioux Tribe's juvenile cases were related to underage drinking.
"Kids with substance abuse problems on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation don't get the treatment and social services they need," says Emery.
United Press International: Johnson certified winner in South Dakota, 12 Nov 2002 [cached]
"Between Congress, the Supreme Court and litigation brought by several states, we are getting litigated out of existence," said Steve Emery, director of the Sinte Gleska University Policy Institute.
Johnson said the issue is respect.
"They are asking that the government-to-government relationship that is supposed to exist between the tribes be honored and that the federal government not try to impose Washington solutions that are contrary to what the Native people themselves want," Johnson said.
Johnson said, however, he is unlikely to orchestrate passage of a measure that would return the Black Hills National Forest to the tribes even though Indians consider the area sacred.He said there just isn't much support for such a measure, and he and the tribes would be better off focusing on issues that are achievable.
