City leaders rejected a similar motion in 2016, WCPO reported. This time it passed by a 6-2 margin, with two council members abstaining from the vote, WCPO reported.
"I thought it was actually going to pass (in 2016), and when it didn't, it was heartbreaking," Guy Jones, a member of the Lakota tribe, told WCPO. "When it was announced that it passed, I was like, 'Finally. Finally.'"
