For sale: Wounded Knee

FILE - This Feb. 7, 2012 file photo shows a cross on a grave at the Wounded Knee National Historic landmark in South Dakota. Wednesday is the final day a landowner has given the Oglala Sioux Tribe to make an offer to buy a portion of the Wounded Knee National Historic Landmark. James Czywczynski has said he would sell the land, which sits next to where about 150 of the 300 Lakota men, women and children killed by the 7th Cavalry in 1890 are buried, and another piece of land for no less than $4.9 million. Tribal members have said the asking price is much too high. (AP Photo/Rapid City Journal, File)
