Two Democratic National Convention delegates from Nebraska are asking President Barack Obama to return a piece of the state to a South Dakota Indian tribe.
Frank LaMere says he and his daughter, Lexie, will present delegates with a resolution aimed at Whiteclay, Neb., at the party meeting in Charlotte, N.C. Both are members of Nebraska's Winnebago
Whiteclay is known for beer sales on the border of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where alcohol is banned. It was part of Pine Ridge when Congress created the reservation in 1889.
The resolution seeks an executive order to restore a 50-square-mile buffer zone known as the Whiteclay extension, which was designed to protect Pine Ridge from whiskey peddlers. President Theodore Roosevelt opened all but one square mile to settlers in 1904.
