The Wounded Knee Massacre site is up for sale by a private owner, James Czywczynski, who is non-Native. Ownership of this land was stripped from the people of Pine Ridge by the Dawes Act of 1887.

Petitioning The President of the United States
Purchase Wounded Knee, SD to return to the Sioux Nation
The United States can find billions to fight wars that we don't need to be in, I'm sure it could find money to make a wrong to be more right. But then that would make sense and be the correct thing to do.....I won't hold my breath.

Ty Cal for finding this petition and AniMae darling for spreading the word! def signing. I also reserve the feeling like Dandy-1. Sadly this land is historical value both Native and Non so this should be a no-brainer for the federal Govt. But, sadly, look at the administrations values. Land and animals and rights? bahhhh!

This country spends trillions of dollars to fund wars we don't want to get involved in, billions to aid foreign countries, most of them hate us, too. They take the money with one hand, then stab us in the back with the other one. For example: Pakistan and others. But they can't RETURN what rightfully belongs to the Sioux Nation? Many Native Americans have ancestors buried there. That's sacred ground. Give it back to the rightful owners, the Native Americans. Do not add insult to injury, by asking them to purchase it.
