Mato Ohitika Analytics LLC called to Testify on behalf of the Yankton Sioux Tribe at the South Dakota Department of Environmental & Natural Resources (DENR) Water Management Board Hearings in Regard to the Keystone XL Pipeline Water Permits. (Pierre, SD January 13, 2020).
Dr. Joseph Robertson has been called to testify as a lay witness on behalf of the Yankton Sioux Tribe as to the public interest and beneficial water use of water in regard to multiple water permits TransCanada has applied for to provide water to the proposed man camps in the South Dakota corridor of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Dr. Robertson has been working on a risk assessment to study harm reduction related to Mudered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) on behalf of the Brave Heart Society and the Yankton Sioux Tribe to study police capacity.
This assessment provides some basic evidence of the lack of police capacity near the Yankton and Rosebud Reseravtions to handle the sudden influx of men coming into these camps.
Mato Ohitika Analytics will be making available to the public the release of the Zuya Winyan Wicayu’onihan (Honoring Warrior Women) Project Brief that describes the nature of this project in the very near future.
Dr. Robertson's testimony was provided on January 13, 2020 at the Visitor Center adjacent to the state capitol at approximately 8:30 am and the story was picked up by Keloland Capitol News Bureau:
I want to thank the Brave Heart Society and the Yankton Sioux Tribe for this opportunity to present my findings in these important issues Native and Non-Native communities face in the man camp intrusions with the approval of these water permits.
