Defenders Of The Black Hills Preservation Group Standing Down

Defenders of the Black Hills, a non-profit group operating locally for the last 14 years, will be disbanding, reports the Rapid City Journal.

The group, headed by Charmaine White Face, has been active in preserving sacred sites from desecration and protecting natural resources from fracking, mining and deforestation since 2003.  White Face, who is also a spokesman for the Sioux Nation Treaty Council, hopes that other groups that have come into existence since then will continue the work of the Defenders.
