Will Johnny Depp buy Wounded Knee?

Posted:

Johnny Depp has announced that he wants to buy Wounded Knee, a national historic landmark, and give it back to the Oglala Sioux Indian people.
 
In a recent interview, the actor revealed that he is ready to spend millions in order to give the Native American people control of the land that was the site of a brutal 1890 massacre.
The land has been offered for sale to the tribe by its owner, James Czywczynski for $3.9 million. But a tribal appraisal put its value at closer to $14,000.
