Land Buy-Back Program: Important Facts for Landowners

In mid-March the Department of the Interior’s Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations (Buy-Back Program) sent purchase offers to approximately 16,000 landowners with fractionated interests at the Pine Ridge Reservation. This means that collectively over copy00 million could be paid to allottees who choose to sell their interests. Over the coming weeks, this infusion will benefit local businesses and tribal communities. In the long term, it means the return of hundreds of thousands of acres of land to the Oglala Sioux Nation.
