The Rosebud Sioux Tribe of South Dakota says it has secured funding for the earnest deposit to buy land in South Dakota's Black Hills that tribes consider sacred.
Tribes of the Great Sioux Nation consider the nearly 2,000 acres of privately owned land key to their creation story, and members feared new owners would develop the land they call Pe' Sla. The tribes have been raising money to try to buy the land.
Rosebud Sioux Tribe spokesman Alfred Walking Bull says the tribe is still working out details and more information should be available as early as next week.
The current land owners would not comment.
