The reason am posting this is because with all the recent interest in the area because of NODAPL, people might be interested in knowing what it is like living there otherwise. Handouts to residents aren't needed, but learning about their issues is a good start.

4. It has been an impoverished area for so long. Shove them onto smaller and smaller pieces
