Pe’ Sla, The Heart Of All That Is: Help Save the Lakota Heart Land
Pe’ Sla is currently owned by the Reynolds family. On August 25, 2012, approximately 1,942.66 acres, sold in 5 tracts of land, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Once sold, it is highly likely that Pe’ Sla will be opened up for development, with the State of South Dakota building a road directly through it.
Although we believe our sacred places were taken illegally by the United States government, Lastrealindians, Inc., is collaborating with the Rosebud Sioux Tribe and the Great Sioux Nation (the Oceti Sakowin) to centralize fundraising to save one of our most precious sacred sites, Pe ‘Sla. In an unprecedented, collective effort, the united Great Sioux Nation (the Oceti Sakowin), is attempting to buy as much of Pe’ Sla as possible, to save it from destruction and ensure that future generations of Lakota, Dakota, Nakota, and other Tribal Nations that consider the Black Hills holy, will continue to have access to this vital sacred site to practice their faith on its ceremonial grounds in its natural, pristine state.
