De Blasio open to talks on transfer of Black Hills to Sioux tribe


August 22, 2019

SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio says he would bring tribal and federal leaders together to “determine a path forward” on returning the Black Hills to its historic occupants, the Lakota Sioux tribal nations.

“The history referred to around the Black Hills must be answered it can’t be ignored,” Mr. de Blasio said Tuesday at an American Indian presidential forum here. “And the only way to do that is to have leaders of your community with leaders of the federal government to determine a path forward.”
