Author:

Gov.-elect Dennis Daugaard said he hopes to foster more cooperation between the state and Indian tribes by creating a Cabinet-level secretary of tribal affairs in his administration. Daugaard said he expects an announcement soon on who will fill the post. He said it will be a tribal person from South Dakota. He told the Argus Leader that the tribes should have a representative who has direct access to the governor.
