“The sacred Tatanka on display”

30-60 million bison once roamed the great plains of North America. By the close of the 19th century, it's estimated that less than 1,000 bison survived. This is their story. Tatanka is a Lakota word that literally means “bull buffalo,” but Tatanka meant more than that. Ceremonies and daily life revolved around sacred reverence for Tatanka. While at Tatanka, you'll enjoy: a larger than life bronze sculpture featuring 14 bison pursued by 3 Native American Horseback Riders, Hands-on Interpretive Center, Native American Gift Shop and Snack Bar.

If you're in the area, definitely stop here. It's nice to remember that there's more to South Dakota than just Deadwood and cowboys and outlaws. Have a guide take you around the artwork and museum thing, otherwise you won't get the context and importance of what you're looking at.

This is a very special place that is worth the time. Lots of great artifacts and some beautiful sculptures. Great gift shop with some authentic Native American crafts. Had a great tour guide who made the visit special.

Really nice displays. They had native Americans on hand to answer questions and share some of their experiences. I wonder if Kevin Costner ever visits?
