State Senator Red Dawn Foster spoke last before the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Utilities Commission at hearings held this week at Saint Francis. The freshman senator from Oglala Lakota County said she opposed the Keystone XL pipeline during the 2019 legislative session. She told commissioners that there's a "clash of world views" between state officials and indigenous people.
