A federal administrator who has long been critical of Spirit Lake social services says he sees no significant improvements since the Bureau of Indian Affairs took over child protective services on the reservation.

Thomas Sullivan with the Administration for Children and Families released his eighth report criticizing the tribe for what he calls a continued unwillingness to protect children. In the latest report, Sullivan cites an instance when tribal chairman Roger Yankton admitted there were no lies in Sullivan's previous report, which document numerous graphic cases of child abuse on the reservation.
