Czywczynski and his family are selling the land for 3.9 million dollars, and the Oglala Sioux tribe are considering purchasing it. Czywcynski is giving the tribe an opportunity to purchase the land before anybody else gets a chance to buy it. The property contains the site of the massacre but does not contain the Wounded Knee Memorial or the Sacred Heart Cemetery.
