A Standing Rock death due to the propane shortage brought the issue to the forefront with as many as 5,000 homes using propane on the reservation. The Minnesota tribe operates several enterprises including a casino and runs a charitable giving program.

Governor Jack Dalrymple issued a statement Monday saying the state is also offering help to the tribe.
