This is wonderful news for the Lakota. And while most non-tribal people wouldn't think about it this way, it is wonderful news for all of us. It is a long long road to true reconciliation given the nation's history with tribal people. This is a tiny step on that road. I wonder why the federal government isn't helping the tribe to purchase this site? The Lakota wouldn't have to being buying it back if it hadn't been stolen in the first place by the government.
