Fort Yates, North Dakota (AP) 11-09

New leaders are in place on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

Newly elected Chairman Charles Murphy, along with elected tribal council officers, district representatives and school board members were sworn in at a ceremony during mid-October.

Murphy was elected during September to his sixth term as chairman since 1983. In the latest election, he beat out Ron His Horse Is Thunder, who served one term.

The reservation straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border.
