      RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Tribal representatives walked out of a meeting with U.S. State Department officials who came to Rapid City to discuss concerns about the Keystone XL pipeline project.
 
     Oglala Sioux Tribe President Bryan Brewer made a statement dismissing the gathering as a sham because no leadership of the United States was present.
 
     The tribes are concerned about the project's potential impact on sites sacred to the tribes.
 
     A news release says members of the Lakota, Ponca, and Pawnee tribes consider the meeting a "sham" because the Obama administration sent "low level clerks" to meet with tribal and treaty leaders.
