  1. Cultural Assessment of CRST uses of Riparian Habitats and Resources Feasibility Determination Report, June 15, 1998

    This feasibility assessment addresses the need for research concerning the place of riparian habitats and resources in the history and culture of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe (CRST). It contains the results of research conducted during April, May, and June of 1998. It recites the feasibility assessment steps undertaken between April and June, summarizes various preliminary observations, and proposes a possible research plan for a full cultural assessment to be conducted between June and November of 1998. It concludes that a full cultural assessment is both feasible and recommended.

  2. Socioeconomic Characterization of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation

    The purpose of this draft report is to characterize the demographic and socioeconomic conditions of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in north central South Dakota. Because the Reservation encompasses the counties of Dewey and Ziebach, a similar analysis is provided for these counties. The following data are subject to severe limitations and are not reliable based on previous research we have conducted on other Native American Reservation. However, in this initial stage of this research project, they provide the best picture available. We make several recommendations at the end of this report that will help to remedy these limitations.
