Si Tanka wrapping up discussions with BIA

Si Tanka University representatives are hoping they can wrap up talks with the Bureau of Indian Affairs over the future of the tribal school.

Si Tanka officials have been meeting with the BIA in Washington, D.C., to discuss how to secure funds for the institution. Without the money, Si Tanka's off-reservation campus will close and the on-reservation campus could be threatened.

Sen. Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota) is also trying to figure out how to get the Education Department involved.
