SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe in Flandreau has ended publication of its weekly newspaper the Dakota/Lakota Journal.

According to a front page story, the Jan. 2-9, 2009 issue will be the last.

The tribe said the poor economic conditions have cut readership and advertising, while the Internet and new technology have changed how people receive information.
