Tribe to receive 100 wild horses

EAGLE BUTTE - The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe will receive 100 wild horses from Nevada on Friday, Sept. 3, through the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros.

The organization will present the horses to the tribe in a ceremony at 1 p.m. at the Eagle Butte powwow grounds, according to a news release from group president Karen Sussman of Lantry.
The gift represents the historic return of wild horses to the Lakota people, Sussman said.

The wild horses will remain in a conservation program operated by the tribe and will become a focal point for tourism on the reservation, she said.

Sussman said the Virginia Range Herd horses were the first wild horses in the United States to receive legal protection, under a 1952 Storey County, Nev., ordinance. However, the horses did not receive federal protection under the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act.

The International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros manages two other wild horse herds on the Cheyenne River Reservation.
