Trial Set In Proposed Tribal National Park Dispute

April 16, 2014, 10:26 AM

Trial Set In Proposed Tribal National Park Dispute
RAPID CITY, SD -

A judge has reserved three weeks this summer for a trial involving a proposed tribal national park in southwestern South Dakota.

The National Park Service and Oglala Sioux are working to create the park. The plan includes the reintroduction of bison to the South Unit of Badlands National Park and using grasslands surrounding the proposed park to provide forage for the bison.

Ranchers who fear they will be forced off their land have petitioned Judge Mary Wynne to stop the tribal council from canceling grazing leases and expanding the South Unit by condemnation. Wynne has scheduled trial to begin July 28.

Meanwhile, the Park Service has scheduled meetings next week in nine reservation communities and Rapid City to take comments on the proposed bison herd.
