Whiteclay, Nebraska has a predatory economy.

There should be tourism instilled into that economy. The town should have a hotel, at the very least, but, also Indian culture shops. The shops can be unique to the reservation and steeped in culture that includes holistic cures and Indian medicine.

...Now many residents (click here) of Nebraska and South Dakota are pushing for the liquor stores of Whiteclay to be shut, disgusted by the easy access to alcohol the stores provide to a people who have fought addiction for generations. The Nebraska authorities, in turn, have tightened scrutiny of the stores, which sell millions of cans of beer and malt liquor annually. Last year, for the first time, the state liquor commission ordered the stores’ six owners to reapply for their liquor licenses....

Whiteclay should talk about it's name with a town hall that carries it's history and current shame and conscience change. That is not to say beer and wine should not be sold in Whiteclay, but, only in the way of a beverage at dinner in the town's new bistro.

Sex trafficking, too? (click here) How many Native Americans, young and old, male and female are missing from the sovereign reservation of Pine Ridge.

History. The border town of Whiteclay has always been tied to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to the north within the state boundaries of South Dakota. ... The trading post developed as the unincorporated community of Pine Ridge, commonly known as Whiteclay.

Indian Reservations, until the past decade or so, were preyed upon for natural resources as well. Greed creates animals instead of human beings.
