The tribes celebrated after learning of the BIA's March 10 decision. “This is a historic moment as our Sioux Nation tribes work together to protect our sacred site, Pe’ Sla," Shakopee Chairman Charlie Vig said in a press release. "Future generations of our people will conduct ceremonies, honor Mother Earth, and preserve our traditions at Pe’ Sla.”
