Ho-Chunk Nation helps out Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe
The Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin sent a truck and trailer of supplies to the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, whose members have been struggling to recover from a winter storm.

The Ho-Chunk Nation collected generator, clothing, non-perishable food, toiletries and other products after hearing of conditions in South Dakota. "We learned of their status and needs very quickly. We've been keeping in contact with them daily, letting them know of our efforts while passing on the information of their needs," Ho-Chunk Public Relations Officer Anne Thundercloud was quoted as saying.

Thousands of people lost power on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation and at one point the water system failed. Power is being restored but some homes might be without electricity for weeks.
