The Pine Ridge Reservation was originally part of the Great Sioux Reservation, established after the Fort Laramie Treaty. The Pine Ridge Reservation Archive showcases a variety of photographic mediums from 1880 to 1970. The photographs themselves shed light on a variety of topics including historical events, entertainment, daily life, and the unabashed racism and tragedies endured by the Sioux people.
