South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is now banished from an even bigger chunk of her state after all nine tribes have banned her.

The dog-shooting Republican was banished Tuesday by the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, the final tribe to take such action over her comments accusing Native Americans of being in league with Mexican cartels and of neglecting their children’s education, the Argus Leader reported.

Noem — who until recently had been tipped to be former President Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate — was already banished from around 20% of her state even before the final three of the nine tribes took action.

The final decision came after Flandreau leadership had a “respectful and productive” meeting with Noem on Sunday, the Argus Leader added.

Tyler Rambeau, the executive administrative assistant of the FSST Homeowners Assistance Fund, told the outlet that the leadership had faced pressure from the community to ban Noem.
