And I believe the tribes have refused. Treaty language is pretty clear about the Native rights, but we know how treaties have been ignored when beneficial to one of the parties.

Native American reservations are considered domestic dependent nations. When on any reservation, everyone, including non-natives are subject to tribal laws as the tribes are self-governing. While the SD governor may petition the Federal courts, the governor has no executive authority over what happens on the reservation. And it is doubtful that the Federal Courts will override tribal sovereignty because of the minor inconvenience to through traveller’s resulting from the Sioux Nation’s attempts to protect their citizens.

South dakota travel

That is true, except when a state-funded highway is built on Native land, the tribe enters into an intergovernmental agreement. Activities relating to the highway, including the right to set up checkpoints, are governed by that agreement and typically require approval by the state transportation department. Our tribal police set up DUI checkpoints all the time. A COVID checkpoint shouldn’t be an issue unless the state is choosing to make it one.

I live on a state highway on tribal land in Arizona. Like South Dakota, the local community has been disproportionately affected by the corona virus. I heard talk that the tribe wanted to set up roadblocks but ran into the same obstacle. So far they have not pressed the issue. They have closed tribal recreational lands to all entry (even members), which keeps most non-tribal members out of the area.

In South Dakota's case, it's anybody's guess who will win the court fight if it comes to it (if I had to bet, I'd favor the tribes in federal court). In my opinion, though, the governor will lose in the larger courts of history and popular opinion if she presses this. It is an inconvenience if the highway is a major cross-state transportation route used by through traffic. For the affected Native communities it is life and death.

This will be interesting to watch.

The legality and court issues are well beyond my scope of knowledge. However my respect for our native people and their life on the reservation is something I have experienced many times. My feeling is always that if someone doesn’t want me around them, I don’t want to be around them. So short of closing major highways, I’m sure I can get by detouring around reservation ground and driving straight through without stopping or getting out of my vehicle should not be a problem. As long as you watch the gas gauge, hammer down and carry on.

The Corona virus has run rampant through native American communities, killing a highly disproportionate number ... so they need to do whatever they can to cut that rate down, and highways be damned. They should tell any governor in the way to..."Kiss off, Governor."

Hi Myron
Here’s a map of reservation lands in South Dakota. With the major
Attractions in South Dakota being in western South Dakota and the state being criss-crossed with state and Federal highways, I can’t see much reason to need to enter reservation towns or impact the Native American population. So if someone feels the need to journey to South Dakota or visit the Black Hills and the Badlands I doubt there will be a significant impact on their travel plans.

Having traveled through the area last year I think that the State should respect the native Americans rights on their lands. Go around and leave them alone if that is what they want.

He will. Had strong feelings about closing down the hiking trails but after thinking about it, it's a temporary inconvenience.....Maybe excessive but also maybe effecting others well being. Who am I to think I know more than our elected leaders & professionals as well as the rest of the world's restrictions.

Would you rather be Wisconsin? OMG what a crap show they have going over there. Annie's Camping in Wisconsin just announced "No masks allowed" and that anyone wearing a mask will be treated as a robbery suspect. YIKES!!!!

Being a resident of Wisconsin, I can assure you that we will rectify the problem as soon as we sober up .

LOL, I would expect the Annie's camping attitude from a bank but my gosh it's a friggin campground. Lots of people who are traveling cross country will be staying there. What if they catch covid 19 and pass it along to all the other campgrounds along the way. Very scary and very selfish.

Fortunately this is a small minded commercial campground owner who will be allowing potential carriers into their office. Enough exposure and the owner should be bound to get a good strong bingo. And about the bank robber comment, the proliferation of weapons toting idiots in the upper Midwest, Iowa included, as well as Wisconsin, Michigan etc ought to make for a nice shootout some Friday night when the Fallflat beer has been flowing for a couple hours.
“ How did you get all those buckshot holes in the side of your Montana? “Oh I was in the crossfire at the third shootout at Annies Camp Ground after the Church service Sunday morning”. More bleach needs added to Annie’s gene pool.

Does anyone know the current situation with SD travel? I'm looking to head west via US 12 which goes through reservation land.

Just avoid it. Take I-90. Going through reservation land even without coronavirus takes some planning, i.e. where do you find bathrooms, gas, food, camping. I speak from experience. We have volunteered on Pine Ridge Reservation almost every summer for the last 20 years.

The Governor has told them to remove the roadblocks and the Indians said Make US. I haven't heard what the Federal Courts have to say yet. After all they are a nation and have treaty rights (of course we have abrogated those many times).
The answer either way is go around and respect their wishes.

I drove through part of Pine Ridge reservation on SD-73 on Sunday, but didn't stop at all... didn't see any roadblocks... or people at all really.
