The Dakotas

The Black Hills, as filmed by the makers of THE WEST. Rich in game and mystery, the Black Hills were sacred to a succession of Plains tribes who fought to control them. The discovery of gold near here in 1874 touched off a stampede of white settlers that led to a climactic war between the United States and the Lakotas.
