Proposed bar near Bear Butte still under fire
Monday, October 31, 2005

Lakota activists will continue to fight a proposed bar near sacred Bear Butte in South Dakota.

The Bear Butte International Alliance says plans for the bar will harm Bear Butte. Tribes in the Plains go to the site to hold ceremonies and make offerings.

Jay Allen, the owner of a saloon, wants to build a bar and concert venue near Bear Butte. He has dropped plans to call it Sacred Ground and has moved the location farther away from the butte but Lakota activists still say the proposal is offensive.
