EAGLE BUTTE, SOUTH DAKOTA – Tribal officials are asking the public stay inside due extreme cold winter conditions on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation. Search parties found the bodies of two tribal members within the past week. Both died from being exposed to freezing temperatures.
A third person, Tom Traversie, Jr. is missing and search parties are braving the cold weather to look for him. A Command Center has been set up at the Cheyenne River Game Fish and Parks in Eagle Butte, coordinating the efforts to find Traversie.

The federal government has now taken that offer off the table, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Monday, and the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) spending increase will revert to 3 per cent a year as of April 1, 2017.
