Men hope to preserve Sitting Bull's burial site

Two South Dakota men hope to preserve the site where the famous Sioux leader Sitting Bull is buried.

Bryan Defender and Rhett Albers bought the 40-acre site in Mobridge last month. They plan to provide 24-hour security and clean up the site. Eventually, they want to build a visitor or cultural center.

Sitting Bull was originally buried in Yates, North Dakota, but his body was moved to Mobridge in 1953.
