A Sacred Place
A sacred place for the Lakota, their oral tradition tells the story that this is where humans first emerged from within the earth to live on the surface.
This 33,851-acre attraction is as impressive above ground as it is below. Its unique ecosystem is home to elk, buffalo, antelope, deer, prairie dogs and black-footed ferrets.
