Keepseagles lead ‘Parade of Champions’
11 September 2012


RIDING IN STYLE: George and Marilyn Keepseagle (Standing Rock) wave from a classic convertible during the United Tribes ‘Parade of Champions.’ The ranchers from Cannonball, ND were grand marshals for the September 8 tribal tour through downtown Bismarck that featured dancers, singers and Native groups attending the international powwow. George and Marilyn were honored for their role as lead plaintiffs in a successful class-action lawsuit against the federal government. They are much-admired for their commitment to justice for Native farmers and ranchers who experienced decades of discrimination in USDA programs. At rear, United Tribes Technical College President David M. Gipp.
