M245 SIOUX HUNTERS Sioux hunters from the Pine Ridge Agency are pictured entering the “badlands”–the northern region of their Reservation in South Dakota. During the time of the Ghost Dance many faithful followers fled into this wasteland seeking protection from General Miles’ troops. The name “badlands” was acquired by French-Canadian trappers from Indian hunting parties who told of their difficulties in crossing this dry and barren region. To preserve its rugged beauty, Badlands National Monument was established in 1939. Photograph by Edward Curtis, 1908
