Description:     A person might say that some of the joy in visiting Pine Ridge is getting there. The drive through Southwestern South Dakota's prairie grasslands can be awe-inspiring.
    The town is located in the Pine Ridge Reservation of the Oglala Sioux Tribe and is near the site of the 1890 Wounded Knee massacre of Lakota women and children by the US 7th Army.  The Pine Ridge Reservation at 2.7 million acres is the second-largest Indian Reservation in the United States. The reservation includes parts of the Badlands National Park and the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands.
     The Heritage Center at the Red Cloud Indian School is nationally recognized for its collection of Native American Art, both contemporary and historical. It is also home to the annual Red Cloud Indian Art Show, the nation's foremost gathering of Native American artists. Visitors and art collectors from around the world attend this show every year and contemporary works of fine art are offered for sale in the gallery year round.
