Chase Iron Eyes, a member of the Lakota tribe, is using crowd funding to help raise millions of dollars to buy back part of South Dakota’s Black Hills prairie land. This land is up for sale and the money must be raised by Nov. 30th. It is a bittersweet effort since these lands are considered sacred and part of the Great Sioux Nation, but many in the tribe are working hard to come up with $9 million – including a campaign on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo. Watch Chase’s original video appeal here, and see a video of the Black Hills here.
