RIGHT NOW, THE GREAT SIOUX NATION IS BATTLING AGAINST THE CLOCK TO SAVE PE’ SLA, ONE OF ITS MOST SACRED RELIGIOUS SITES. Pe’ Sla, located in the center of the Black Hills of South Dakota, U.S.A, is considered to be the heart of everything that is by the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people. Besides being part of their creation story, Pe’ Sla plays a crucial role in the star knowledge of the Sioux. Ceremonies essential to their culture and beliefs, that Tribal elders and spiritual leaders explain help keep the Universe in harmony, must be conducted at Pe’ Sla.
Pe’ Sla is currently owned by the Reynolds family. On August 25, 2012, approximately 1,942.66 acres, sold in 5 tracts of land, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Once sold, it is highly likely that Pe’ Sla will be opened up for development, with the State of South Dakota building a road directly through it.
