any crow creek resident who wishes to file a complaint with the puc has seven steps to follow:

South Dakota Administrative Rules

then the commission shall attempt to settle the complaint without formal action.

then the commission shall forward a copy of the complaint to the respondent (central electric) and a notice requiring the respondent to satisfy the complaint or answer it in writing within 20 days from the date of service or within such time as may be specified by the commission.

the respondent shall, within time specified by statute 20100109, satisfy the complaint by making reparation for the injury alleged to have been done, correcting the wrong complained of, or answering the complaint by filing the answer with the commission and serving a copy on each complainant. if a respondent satisfies a complaint before or after answering, a written acknowledgement showing the character and extent of the satisfaction must be filed by the compainant, and a statement and manner of satisfaction may be filed as an answer. upon approval of the commission, the complaint shall be dismissed.

in any contested case proceeding, the complainant, counterclaimant, applicant, or petitioner has the burden of going forward with presentation of evidence unless otherwise ordered by the commission. the complainant, counterclaimant, applicant, or petitioner has the burden of proof as to factual allegations which form the basis of the complaint, counterclaim, application, or petition. in a complaint proceeding, the respondent has the burden of proof with respect to affirmative defenses.

except as otherwise provided by statute, written notice of hearing shall be served upon all parties and such other persons as the commission directs, at least 10 days prior to the date set for hearing, unless the commission determines a shorter or longer period of notice for good cause. the notice shall contain the contents required by http://legis.state.sd.us/statutes/Di...tatute=1-26-17

*edit*

fixed it

Thats a lot of red tape to cut through, I think they make it so difficult and time consumming that most people will not even bother to file a complaint, and that goes the same for any government office.

after work today i'm going to call their toll free number and ask what the per kwh rate is and also their disconnect and reconnect fees. they are headquartered in jefferson city, mo. i also will ask about the quoted rates for missouri.

It looks like now they don't have the meters that get pulled to disconnect the electric...they just have the electronic ones they can turn off from the main office.
Sneaky suckers.

With as high as of native population as South Dakota has, it has got to be one the worst places for prejudice again natives. Case in point.

I just wanted to add a thought, being from Crow creek, the people really have no internet access, therefore, can't speak for themselves.
.
I posted a story about the reservation here at pow-wows, one woman responded, told us alot of good ides and left us with empty promises, made us wait for nothing,
and yet she still accepted what gifts we had to offer for her kind thoughts.
.
There are some there on the reservation that are not with 'can-do' , some grassroots.
money is good, but really, it's all political on the reservation, i guess, where some common people are left sitting in the dark, while others celebrate heritage.
.
it made me feel good to see you all interested and talking about our reservation's problem,
pidamaye, Thank you.

The people questioned his blood degree a few times in the past, eachtime the peoples request was denied by the courts, the BIA and no tribal input for the people.
the reason, "It would be Detramental to living relatives".
even today, with all the different post's in the south dakota papers, the tribal council will not question his blood degree.
the papers shut down communications once this news of his blood degree comes up.
but what can be done?, He's the Man no one can question.
It was said, Native girls, including my niese, was said to be dancing on tables at his bar for all his hunting cronnies.
.
you do know this is a taboo subject that will get me and my family put on the reservations black list.
.
as for the past tribal concil members indicted and sentenced, I can't find any news on the Archie Baumann sentencing, he's the white guy that offered the bribes to the council members, he was suppose to be sentenced on Aug. 16, but there is no news on the internet, but there is news on the internet of the native council members being sentenced, but nothing on Archie Baumann.
.
A non-native on tribal council, how does that look?.
maybe it's one of the reason the peoples lights keep going out, we don't have a tribal chairman rooting for the grassroots. (???? : )

Crow Creek # 1.

Crow Creek Native Blood Degree Proof on Tribal Council - Topix

'Ignoring it' won't make it go away, the tribal debts remain- as well as the bars.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,
#2.

News : Thompson sentenced for bribery, theft - Capital Journal Pierre, SD newspaper since 1881

start from the bottom and read up,
you will see when the news paper cut the comments.
right after they all agreed "communication was the Answer".

Did you all know Crow Creek doesn't have a web site?, ever wonder why?.

'Ignoring it' won't make it go away, the tribal debts remain- as well as the bars.
,,,,,,,,,,,,,
( This is a public post in the Chamberlain SD News paper, "Fort Thompson Forum" _ Crow Creek Agency, So. Dak.)
,,,,,,,,,,,,,


Shouldn't all tribal council members be Native to be on tribal council?, and have proof of their Native Blood Degree?,
Tribal council positions are public office's and a tribal council member is also a public figure.

Our elders, for years have been repeatedly saying we have a non native person on council, but 'he' Will Not "Allow" tribal members to question his blood quantum,
This stops the show of proof of 'Legal blood or No blood', and the question has continued on over the "YEARS".

Shouldn't the people have the right to address Blood degrees of thier tribal council leaders within a Sovereign Treaty Tribe?.

The BIA and our own tribal leaders will not question these actions, but legally - unlegally protects him, for 'years'.

Reservations were given to Native Peoples, sometimes as prison camps, some as Homelands,
it's all thatís left, all that was given to the people after they were striped of their own ways of life.
today, common tribal members really have no rights to question or to answers, within thier own sovereign home lands.

On and Beyond the reservation, to be recognized and to apply for any kind of help, all other tribal members have to show proof of tribal enrollment's which include our blood degrees.

Should tribes have a non native person on council, who in turn 'allows' and; 'dosen't allow' tribal members answers?.

Does a non native person on council effect Native Tribal Sovereignty Rights?.

What will be the effects on the tribe in a long run of having a Non Native person on council?.

When our Elders question something within their own sovereign tribal homeland and are told to 'legally' leave it alone,
by the courts, the BIA and by their own tribal leaders, isn't That disrespecting tribal elders within their own sovereign tribal homelands?.

How is that going to work for us all in a long run?.

Isn't there anyone else concerned about this and it's future effects on the status of the tribe and it's people?.

Or, despite all past tribal activities. is this NonNative the best we have to present?.

???????

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Any ideas?.

Hey AmigoKumeyaay!!! Thanks for starting this thread!!!

I just discovered it now, and I feel ashame to be a white man after looking at these videos! What the heck is motivating a company to behave like this, just money or are there other reason behind?

PS: Subscribed to the newletters in hope to get some more news, but nothing so far. Is the Can-Do project still alive???

Please also check out the Cheyenne River rez. close to the Crow Creek rez. This time caused by the nature, but it seems to take a long time to fix it. Just type "Cheyenne River power" on Google or take a look here:

But why don't we make one for them in order to make this situation more known to everybody? I'm ready to help to make this possible.
What do you all think?

PS: Is the situation the same for this comming winter????
Are there still many families without electricity? Does the de-connections continue?

After what I have read, no deconnection should be made November 1 - March 31.

NO they don't know because it does not fit their romantic delusions of Native America.They don't really want to know because the role they play is to be entertained by indians and not in relationship.Please excuse my being so direct but I do not think enough people outside Native community are aware or care to be.It needs talked about and more conversation between both groups have to happen.
that's just my opinion.sorry it's not such a good one.

There is hope though. there are folks who would care if only the information gets to them!!!!!
