Yankton Sioux tribe has not officially banned Noem

The Yankton Sioux Tribe has not officially banned South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem

Courtney Sully, tribal secretary with the Tribe, says it’s the tribe’s business and claims committee that supports a ban.  Sully says a ban would have to come from a vote of the tribe’s general council, and that has not happened.

Five other tribes have banned Noem: the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Oglala Sioux Tribe and Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe.
