Calling for a Free Press, Brandon Ecoffey Leaves Position as Editor at Lakota Country Times
Statement by Brandon Ecoffey, Lakota
I have chosen to step down as editor of Lakota Country Times to focus on expanding my company Bad Face Consulting. This company was created to help tribal governments develop and implement professional public relations departments and policies in the hopes of fostering better transparency,” said Brandon Ecoffey, former editor of LCT.
Journalists will continue to be hampered in their efforts to expose corruption until tribal councils realize their value and pass laws to protect them. The people deserve to know what is happening within their institutions. Without a free press there will always be a veil of secrecy surrounding the work of tribal-governments.
The proposed dump, which would have been in the center of eight wilderness areas, amidst of critical habitat for the threatened desert tortoise, enclosed by the pristine golden canyons and cave paintings of the Old Woman Mountains, and east of the foothills of the Stepladder Mountains that remain covered in a forest of cholla cacti was utterly eliminated by the coordinated effort of dedicated Native and non-native people joined together for the love of Mother Earth.

Proposed hazardous waste dump on sacred land at Ward Valley, California, was halted by the occupation and lawsuits.
