A Native American tribe has told South Dakota's Republican Gov. Kristi Noem she's not welcome on one of largest reservations in the country after she led efforts to pass a state law targeting demonstrations such as those in neighboring North Dakota that plagued the Dakota Access oil pipeline.

"I am hereby notifying you that you are not welcome to visit our homelands," Oglala Sioux President Julian Bear Runner said in a letter to Noem following a 17-0 Tribal Council vote on Wednesday approving the action. He told Noem that if she ignores the directive "we will have no choice but to banish you" from the the Pine Ridge reservation.

Not really. They have the ability to call up the National Guard in emergencies, but they aren't considered a commander-in-chief like the president is.

But designated tribal lands (reservations) operate under different standards than most places, too. It's all very complicated and I definitely don't know all the rules. But they are allowed to ban certain people from their lands if they want, and the governor is not exempt. This is not really a common thing, but they're definitely well within their legal rights.

Thanks for the explanation.
