Proposal would create tribal national park out of Pine Ridge lands

By Wayne Ortman
Sioux Falls, South Dakota (AP)

Thousands of acres taken from the Oglala Sioux Tribe nearly 70 years ago would be returned and managed as a tribal national park under a proposal from the National Park Service.

The change involves the 208 square-mile South Unit thatís part of Badlands National Park in southwest South Dakota.

In 1942, the U.S. governmentís War Department took what is now the South Unit from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to establish a practice bombing range that was used until the 1960s. The land was later returned to the tribe as government-held trust land to be managed by the Park Service as part of Badlands National Park.
