Western Sky at CRST Council Clip One
On October 9, 2013, at 2:30 p.m., the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe heard testimony from employees and supporters, as well as a few non-supporters, of Western Sky and about the owner Butch Webb.
The following series of videos are from October 9 from 2:30 p.m. and on to almost 8:30 p.m. minus over two hours of Executive Session. They are raw, meaning we have not edited them for content or sound bites. These images and sound are a bit rough, but we hope the video will be of use to the readers of the West River Eagle.
Our usual newspaper coverage will be in next week’s paper.
Please be courteous in commenting on YouTube. We reserve the right to delete anything that amounts to hate speech. Thank you. Wopila.
Courtesy note: An issue was raised by a tribal elder (which you can hear in this clip) about the videotaping being done by someone not on our staff. We ourselves wanted to only videotape that which was said for the benefit of the public meeting. We did take photos of the crowd, as we have in the past and have had permission to do. We would also refer to the American Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968 regarding freedom of speech and the press in Indian Country.
