Appeals court upholds existence of Yankton Sioux reservation

Pierre, South Dakota (AP)

A federal appeals court says a small part of the once-huge Yankton Sioux Tribe’s reservation in southeastern South Dakota still exists and remains under the legal jurisdiction of the tribe and federal government.

The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholds most of an earlier decision by U.S. District Judge Lawrence Piersol of Sioux Falls.
