The Dakotas

The Standing Rock and Cheyenne River reservations were at the center of the so-called Ghost Dance uprising among the Lakota in 1890. Standing Rock, to the north, was home to Sitting Bull, whose murder by Indian police sparked a panic that led ultimately to the massacre at Wounded Knee.
