Canupa Gluha Mani and two other members of the Strong Heart Warrior Society met earlier this week with South Dakota's two U.S. Senators and a U.S. Congressman to discuss problems on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Gluha Mani's primary complaint was abuse that tribal members face at the hands of tribal police.
