Shakopee Mdewakanton Chairman Stanley R. Crooks Has Passed

Stanley R. Crooks, the longtime chairman of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community and a renowned Indian country leader, passed away on Saturday, August 25.

Philip Baker-Shenk, an attorney with the firm Holland and Knight, notified Indian Country Today Media Network of the chairman’s passing late Saturday. Crooks had endured a long respiratory illness that turned acute in the last several weeks, Baker-Shenk said. “Stan was a dear friend. And a tireless defender of tribal sovereignty. And a huge patron of so many good causes and a giant mentor for so many good people in Indian country. Original giants like Chairman Stanley Crooks can never be replaced; at best they can only be copied,” Shenk said.
