Si Tanka University to discuss future of school

Si Tanka University in South Dakota is holding a press conference to announce its plans for the future.

The university's off-reservation campus in Huron may be forced to close due to lack of federal funds. Si Tanka officials spent the last week in Washington, D.C., trying to work with the Bureau of Indian Affairs on a solution.

Students at the Huron campus may have to leave in April without the money. The on-reservation campus in Eagle Butte could also be affected.
