Rosebud Sioux buy 44 acres in Paha Sapa
By Native Sun News Staff

RAPID CITY — Just a few days after finalizing the sale of Pe’ Sla, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe purchased 44 acres of Pennington County land west of Deerfield Road at auction Tuesday, Dec. 4.

A spokeswoman for the tribe on Dec. 7 confirmed the 44-acre land purchase.

The purchase was made via telephone by tribal Treasurer Wayne Boyd for $3,600 per acre, according to news reports. The tribe will pay an additional $14,400 for the 10 percent auction fee and a $10 filing fee, for a total of $158,410.

The 44-acre purchase has limited access and is about 6,850 feet in elevation. Pennington County owned the land for about 100 years, but did not know that until recently and decided to auction it to get it off the books.

The tribe outbid a Rapid City dentist for the land.

The 44-acre parcel will be used for a small home or cabin for the person who will be the caretaker of the sacred Pe’ Sla land, which is also situated within Pennington County.

Rosebud Sioux Tribe President Cyril Scott was reached via telephone in Washington, D.C., but declined comment, instead referring Native Sun News to Boyd for comment.

Boyd, however, did not respond to several messages seeking comment.
