House on wheels from Kyle heads to Washington to make statement

Posted:

Tribal members who live on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation say they live in sub-standard housing.

Oglala Sioux Tribal members believe the United States government needs to do something about it, so they are literally moving a house to Washington D.C.

Members of the tribe left from Kyle, SD while escorted by a motorcade today to go to the nation's capitol.

The tribe wants more people in Washington to see the conditions they are living in.

The group has permission to park the house in front of the Capitol on April 17th.  

Stops along the tribes journey include Sioux Falls, Des Moines, Iowa, and Cleveland, Ohio.
