(S.D.)-SD Tribe Buys 40 Acres Of Land In Black Hills

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 12/05/2012 06:37 AM
     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Rosebud Sioux Tribe has bought 40 acres of land in western South Dakota's Black Hills in an auction that was made necessary when a first attempt ended in confusion and a non-sale.
 
     Pennington County auctioned off the remote land west of Deerfield Lake last month but the sale was nullified because the high bidder mistakenly thought he was paying $2,550 for the entire parcel, not per acre. A second auction was held Tuesday, and the tribe was the high bidder, paying more than $144,000 for the land.
 
     The tribe will pay a total of $158,410 with fees factored in. The purchase comes just days after a consortium of tribes raised $9 million to buy land in the Black Hills that they consider sacred.
