The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) supports the tribal leaders of the Oceti Sakowin in their efforts to hold the Grand Gateway Hotel accountable for a recent troubling civil rights incident. These unlawful actions have no place in a country of equality and democracy and we call on the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate this gross violation of American law.
NCAI stands alongside tribal leaders of Oceti Sakowin, advocacy groups, and allies in calling on the DOJ to investigate the Grand Gateway Hotel’s actions. In order to bring justice to all affected by this violation of civil rights, any racially-motivated measures taken to oppress or harm should be investigated to the fullest extent.
