Tribal Relations Secretary Honored At Ceremony

March 2, 2011, 8:56 AM

FORT PIERRE, SD - The state's first secretary of tribal relations was honored Tuesday during a ceremony at Wakpa Sica Reconciliation Place in Fort Pierre.
 
Leroy "J.R." LePlante will be the first cabinet-level member of the Department of Tribal Relations.  Gov. Dennis Daugaard created the position this year.

LePlante will work to reemphasize the importance of Native American issues and foster a better relationship between the state and the nine tribes within South Dakota.  Daugaard said at the ceremony that he promises to build stronger relations with tribal leaders.

LePlante says he hopes to turn a new page in history and focus on something that will make life for all South Dakotans better.
