      and would like to ask some dumb questions, can someone help me understand some things here? The "massacre site" is up for sale by this guy (non-native) but who "owns" the gravesite itself? These are two distinctly different "sites"? Is it or is it not a National Historic Landmark and what does that mean anyway. d'oih.

      Oh... reading the linked story now, very helpful, thanks again.
