This image provided by The Sicangu Eyapaha shows the common area at the new Rosebud Sioux Tribe Adult Correctional Facility, Wolakota Elkupi Oti, on the Rosebud Reservation near Rosebud, S.D. The opening and staffing may be in question due to budget cuts. When it comes to the automatic spending cuts that began taking effect this month, federal lawmakers spared from hard hits those programs that help the nation’s most vulnerable, such as food stamps, Social Security and veterans’ assistance. That wasn't the case with programs for American Indian reservations, where unemployment is far above the national average, women suffer disproportionately from sexual assaults, and school districts largely lack a tax base to make up for the cuts.
