Native American tribes purchase land near Wounded Knee Massacre site

Two Native American Tribes have purchased approximately 40 acres of land near the Wounded Knee National Historic Landmark on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. According to reports the Oglala Sioux Tribe will spend $225,000 and the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe will spend $245,000 for the site, ending a decades long dispute over the site of the Wounded Knee massacre of 1890. At that massacre, hundreds of Lakota men, women and children were killed by U.S. Soldiers, buried in a mass grave in a nearby Catholic cemetery.
