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.
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.

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!
