When the Lakota looked on this land, they saw the Paha Ska (white hills) – a place of bountiful hunting.  Historically used for transitory camps, the Paha Ska and their western counterpoint, the Paha Sapa (Black Hills) lie in the heart of Lakota treaty lands set aside in 1868.  Half of Badlands National Park is located in the Lakota Pine Ridge Reservation.
