Hopkins, Iron Eyes: tribes raising reserves to bid on Black Hills parcel

Ruth Hopkins (Sisseton-Wahpeton/Mdewakanton/Hunkpapa) is a writer, speaker, former science professor and tribal attorney; she's a columnist for Indian Country Today Media Network and LastRealIndians.com, too.

She has written a passionate appeal for donations to fund reserves to bid on an historic Central Hills parcel:
Black Hills were wrongfully taken from us. We need your help. Pray for us and our efforts to save Pe’ Sla. Share this story. Contact your congressman and voice your concerns for Pe’ Sla, the Oceti Sakowin sacred site that’s on the auction block. Contribute to our cause to buy back Pe’ Sla. Donations may be made online with LastRealIndians here or through the Rosebud Sioux Tribe/Pe Sla, 11 Legion Ave., P.O. Box 430, Rosebud, SD 57570. All donations to the Tribe are tax-deductible and will only be used toward the purchase of Pe Sla.
