Store Could Stay Closed For Weekend

May 18, 2012, 2:49 PM

PINE RIDGE, SD -

The Oglala Sioux tribe's president has filed a second injunction prohibiting the reopening of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation's sole grocery store because of worries that some tribal members will protest and get hurt if it were to reopen.

The store has been closed for a week after allegations that the store was selling outdated meat.

President John Yellow Bird Steele's spokeswoman, Donna Salomon, confirmed the ongoing closure.

Workers gathered outside the store Friday say its closure is hurting elderly tribe members who can't afford rides off the reservation to go shopping. Residents getting state aid for food also are struggling because they can't use the vouchers in Nebraska.

A hearing is set for Tuesday.
