"Rep. Kevin Killer, D-Pine Ridge, likewise called Daugaard's decision 'a step in the right direction.
'It's an acknowledgement by the state that there needs to be some kind of good relationship,' Killer said. 'And I like that he's looking at a nation-to-nation relationship between the state of South Dakota and the nine different tribes.'
Daugaard stressed that it is his philosophy that each of the nine tribes should be recognized separately, and that he thinks it's inappropriate to consider them as one combined entity."
