Dispute Settled, SD Tribe Won't Lose Buffalo Herd

January 13, 2012, 8:48 AM

RAPID CITY, SD - The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe in South Dakota has settled a $1 million dispute with a rancher and will keep its herd of 600 buffalo.

Clint Amiotte in 2009 accused a tribal subsidiary of not paying him for 308 buffalo that were butchered and processed. A federal judge later ruled the tribe owed Amiotte $1 million, and Amiotte was preparing to auction the tribe's buffalo herd to get his money.

Amiotte and the tribe have negotiated a $583,000 settlement, and a scheduled Jan. 23 auction has been canceled.

An attorney representing the tribal subsidiary says officials decided the dispute had dragged on long enough. Amiotte says he's happy with the settlement and glad he doesn't have to resort to auctioning the tribe's buffalo.
