The Rapid City Indian Boarding School Lands

Today, the facility known as Sioux San IHS Hospital rests on a vista overlooking Rapid City. That campus rests on part of a 1,200-acre parcel of land that belonged to the Rapid City Indian Boarding School. Here, you will find articles about the research that has been done so far about the history of these lands, the affect that history has on our community, and updates on new research and developments as they unfold. Please share this link with your friends and family as we continue to educate ourselves about our important history.
