Save Pe'Sla Fundraising Announcement


As you have noted,the Fight for Pe’ Sla Campaign Team has decided to extend our fundraising deadline in order to raise more funds towards our goal of $1 million dollars. We are in direct collaboration with the Leaders of the
Great Sioux Nations (Lakota/Dakota/Nakota) and have made this decision with their agreement as well. This is especially timely given the announcement yesterday, by the Sicangu Nation, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, of their allocation of $1.3 million towards saving Pe’ Sla.
The auction still occurs on August 25, 2012. The tribes must have 10% up front, per the auctioneers website, but the rest of the funds must be paid within 30 days.

This change in our fundraising deadline is also timely given today’s press release by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Professor James Anaya. Professor Anaya “urged today the United States Government and the local and state authorities in South Dakota to address concerns expressed by the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota peoples about an impending private land sale in the Black Hills region of the central-northern state, that will affect a site of great spiritual significance them.”

We are excited and hopeful about this new development! Your letters, phone calls, petitions, and emails have helped! Keep it up!

Please continue to help us fund raise and spread the word! A miracle is happening and you are part of it! We now have 17 days!

Pilamaye! Thank you!
