Important Update 8-24-12: The Auction has been cancelled by the Reynold Family. Thanks to all who have signed and supported this petition. We thank the Reynold Family for making this historic, unselfish, and heart felt decision.
The auction has been cancelled, but this Sacred Land is still listed "For Sale" with the Commercial Real Estate Co. Please don't give up the fight. Stay posted for further developments, sign this petition, and donate to the cause if you are able. We especially enjoy reading your comments. I promise every comment is read and passed on to the Reynold Family.
Your voice will be heard.
Thanks for your support, prayers, and positive thoughts.
Please help the Lakota Sioux stop this Auction and raise money to purchase their "Stolen" sacred land.
This land was "Seized" from the Sioux by our U.S. Government back in 1877 after Gold was discovered. This land rightfully belongs to the Sioux.
This Sacred land is set to be auctioned off on Saturday, August 25th. The Reynolds are the current owners and have allowed the Sioux access to the land in the past. They have the legal right to sell the land, but I am requesting they allow additional time for the Lakota Sioux to raise 10 million dollars to purchase the entire 2000 acres.
Please help the Lakota Sioux regain control of their sacred land. We Americans must undo the injustice forced upon our Brothers by the Government back in 1877. Please donate money at www.lastrealindians.com. and sign this petition. If we band together, we can make a difference.
There is "Power in Numbers". Thank You Bob Venn

Dear Leonard and Margaret Reynolds
Please allow additional time for the Great Sioux Nation to raise 10 million dollars to purchase their sacred 2000 acres in the South Dakota Black Hills.Our Government stole this land from them back in 1877. You have the ability to be American Diplomats on the behalf of the American people to undo an injustice to our Brothers of Native Soil. Please do not allow this Sacred Land to be sold off in 5 acre plots.The 2000 acres of Pe' Sla rightfully belongs to the Lakota Sioux.
Please allow additional time for the money to be generated.Your generosity and kindness will not be forgotten.
