Oglala Sioux Tribal Council Suspends President

Oglala Sioux Tribal Council Suspends President
Bryan Brewer

PINE RIDGE, SD -

The Oglala Sioux Tribal Council has suspended President Bryan Brewer over allegations that he acted without the council's approval more than once and also mishandled a $5,000 check.

Councilman Garfield Steele said the council voted 10-5 on Tuesday to suspend Brewer until July 17, when a hearing is scheduled to determine whether he should be reinstated or impeached.

Brewer did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment on Wednesday.

Steele says a tribal judge will oversee the July 17 hearing, with the eventual decision on Brewer's future left to the council. It would take a two-thirds vote of the 19-member council to remove Brewer from office.
