A landmark less traveled

Monday, June 13, 2016

The Black Hills are both picturesque and mysterious. They contain a number of sites considered sacred by American Indians. Inyan Kara Mountain is one such place. According to Lakota legend, the mountain holds special significance for mothers giving birth.

This local landmark is listed on the National Register for Historic Places because of its cultural significance. In addition to its significance to American Indians, the mountain was one of General Custer’s stops on his expedition through the Black Hills.

The mountain’s summit is 6,368 feet and offers a sweeping view of the surrounding and Black Hills. However, Inyan Kara is less traveled because it’s surrounded by private land—you need permission to access it. Learn more about this fascinating landmark. http://ow.ly/TAXQD
