Wounded Knee For Sale_Hass(1).jpg

James Czywczynski, of Rapid City, S.D., is trying to sell a 40-acre fraction of the Wounded Knee National Historic Landmark for $3.9 million to the Oglala Sioux Tribe. But leaders on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation say the asking price for a property appraised at less than $7,000 is just too much. The land sits adjacent to a gravesite where about 150 of the 300 Lakota men, women and children killed by the 7th Cavalry in 1890 are buried. (AP Photo/Rapid City Journal, Kristina Barker)
