Senate committee takes up Missouri River plan
Thursday, October 16, 2003

The Senate Committee on Indian Affairs holds a hearing today on the Missouri River Master Manual.

Although they are affected by the manual, tribes have long complained they aren't part of it. Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) and tribal witnesses will call for more tribal input and participation. John Yellowbird Steel, president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, and Michael Claymore, a council member for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, are on the witness list.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is completing a new master manual. Three officials from the agency will appear before the committee.

Tribes along the river want protection for sacred sites and burial grounds. Most tribes have been compensated financially for dams the Army Corps built that flooded and destroyed tribal land.

A live video feed of the hearing should be available at http://indian.senate.gov.
