PINE RIDGE INDIAN RESERVATION

Robert "RJ" Kills Enemy, Jr., 23, and Vincent Steve Little Dog, 25, are still missing.

Completely heartbreaking and every parents worst nightmare. These two beautiful young men are loved so much. It is beautiful to see the community come together. We even have relatives from other tribes coming to search with drones and specialized equipment, but it is such a vast rugged area, we need more help. Anyone who seen the men or knows where they might be should call police at 605-867-5141. People interested in volunteering should call the OST police or emergency management at 605-867-5011. Volunteers should dress for cold weather and bring ATVs/UTVs or horses if they have them.

Support Independent Indigenous Journalism

Native News Online is an independent, Indigenous-led newsroom with a crucial mission:  We want to change the narrative about Indian Country. We do this by producing intelligent, fact-based journalism that tells the full story from all corners of Indian Country.  We pride ourselves on covering the tribes you may have never heard of before and by respecting and listening to the communities we serve through our reporting. As newsrooms across the country continue to shrink, coverage of Indian Country is more important than ever, and we are committed to filling this ever-present hole in journalism.

Because we believe everyone in Indian Country deserves equal access to news and commentary pertaining to them, their relatives and their communities, the story you’ve just finished was free — and we want to keep it that way, for all readers. But we hope it inspires you to make a gift to Native News Online so that we can continue publishing more stories that make a difference to Native people, whether they live on or off the reservation. Your donation will help us keep producing quality journalism and elevating Indigenous voices. Any contribution of any amount, big or small, gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change. 
Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
