Tribe Starts Training Program For Oilfield Workers

Tribe Starts Training Program For Oilfield Workers
BISMARCK, ND -

A Native American tribe plans to start a new job training program centered on preparing tribal members for oilfield-related careers.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is starting a rock crusher job training program to give tribal members the skills needed to work in North Dakota's booming oil patch. The tribe is headquartered on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, which straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border.

The tribe has purchased a $2.7 million rock crusher, two front end loaders, a bulldozer and two smaller loaders for the training program.

Anna Cotanny with the Tribal Employment Rights Office says six people will be accepted into the first training session, which will start this spring. The training takes about 500 hours.
