Pe’ Sla is an area in the Black Hills of South Dakota (just west of Rapid City) that is considered by the Lakota people to be the Center and heart of everything that is. It is part of our creation story. It is a sacred place. We perform certain ceremonies at Pe’ Sla which sustain the Lakota way of life and keep the universe in harmony. This area is currently owned by the Reynolds family. They plan to auction off almost 2,000 acres on August 25, 2012 to the highest bidder. It is likely that the state of South Dakota will put a road directly through Pe’ Sla and open up this sacred place for development.

We’re really down to the wire and can use all the help we can get. Literally every dollar counts. Anything you can give, anywhere you can signal boost, anything you can do to get the word out. Please help.
Also, I hate that this needs saying but: this is not the time to be debating religious views or the validity of religion itself. This is not the time to be saying defeatist, pessimistic things about the likelihood of this campaign’s success. All of that hurts and derails this cause. Please don’t do that, OK?
