Nine individuals recently sentenced in federal court for crimes related to dealing and distributing methamphetamine are also facing banishment from the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation pursuant to an anti-meth tribal resolution.

Resolution No. 9-2016-CR was passed by the CRST Tribal Council in January of last year and updated a similar resolution from July of 2015. The resolution states that any individual who is convicted in any tribal, state or federal court of dealing, distributing, manufacturing or trafficking methamphetamine “shall be immediately excluded” from the Cheyenne River Sioux Indian Reservation. The order also includes convictions for possession with intent to distribute. It applies to both tribal members and nonmembers for convictions occurring on or off the CRST Reservation.
