  8. In the late nineteenth century, the area now occupied by the state of South Dakota was a battleground between Native Americans and European settlers. At the heart of the conflict was the beautiful Black Hills, a forested region of about six thousand square miles in the west of the territory. The Sioux people treasured this area. After much fighting and bargaining, they signed a treaty that guaranteed them possession of the Black Hills forever. This agreement lasted little more than five years, for in 1874, prospectors discovered rich deposits of gold there. White miners swarmed west, invading Indian territory in their quest for riches. The Sioux and Cheyenne fought back, winning a great victory over General George Armstrong Custer in 1876. Their resistance was futile, however, as a tide of miners and settlers swept over their land. In 1980 the U.S. Supreme Court admitted the wrong done to the Native American people. It granted them $122.5 million for the seized land. The Sioux refused the offer. They want their Black Hills returned to them. As you read about Sal’s visit to the Black Hills, reflect on how special they are to many Native American people. Did You Know?
