LOWER BRULE, S.D. (AP) - A group of members of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe plan to march next week in an effort to raise awareness about methamphetamine abuse in their community.

KCCR-AM (http://bit.ly/1SlRdTI ) reports the 3-mile march is planned for Monday afternoon on the reservation in central South Dakota.

Kansas Middletent is a special education teacher and is also organizing the march. Middletent says the use of meth on the reservation is affecting tribal members emotionally. Middletent adds that in a sense it appears that “everybody has a (meth) user in their family.”

The march is expected to begin at 1 p.m. at the KWO Trading Post in north Lower Brule and end at the community center in south Lower Brule.
