Dear U.S. Government

Return the Black Hills of South Dakota to the Great Sioux Nation(s).  The United States not only has an obligation to pay its debts, but also to abide its treaties, such as that signed at Fort Laramie in 1868.  It is time to do the right thing and put this issue to rest…not by paying off the tribes for land unlawfully taken, but by restoring a stretch of usable land mutually agreed to have been theirs in the first place.
