In a win for the Rosebud Sioux, Jesuits have decided to return land that was taken over 130 years ago. It seems that because people left the area, there is no need for churches there anymore. On Tuesday, May 2, the Jesuit-run St. Francis Mission announced it will return more than 500 acres to the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. The land is within the boundaries of the Rosebud Indian Reservation, and has been held by the St. Francis mission since the 1880s.
