The Black Hills Of South Dakota were once the sacred ground of the most powerful tribe of Native Americans. The northwest Lakota Sioux flourished for over 100 years aided by the introduction of (Spanish conquistador) horses. The bison hunting Lakota were finally displaced by fur trappers, cattle ranching, and homesteaders, and ultimately confined to reservation life in the 1890s.
