Czywczynski is trying to sell a 40-acre fraction of the Wounded Knee National Historic Landmark for $3.9 million to the Oglala Sioux Tribe. But leaders on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation say the asking price for a property appraised at less than $7,000 is just too much. The land sits adjacent to a gravesite where about 150 of the 300 Lakota men, women and children killed by the 7th Cavalry in 1890 are buried. (AP Photo/Rapid City Journal, Kristina Barker, File)

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.
