South Dakota tribe wants 1863 removal law changed

A South Dakota tribe is asking for the state's help to change an 1863 federal law that technically keeps them from owning land in Minnesota. The law removed Dakota people from Minnesota and relocated them to several states in the Midwest. It was signed by President Abraham Lincoln after conflicts between white settlers and Dakota people in Minnesota.
