One cannot visit Custer, South Dakota without embarking on the profound journey through the Lakota’s Paha Sapa, or in its English translation, the Black Hills. This small and isolated mountain range that stretches from the Great Plains of North America in western South Dakota extending into Wyoming, United States is a vast landscape of forestry, hills, mountain escarpments, and peaks.
Resting just slightly on the outskirts is our seasonal hotel near Black Hills, offering adventure-seeking couples, families, and seniors prime and modern accommodations along with a convenient location close to this life-changing and must-see local attraction!
The history of the Black Hills is that of the Native Americans. Before the Lakota conquered the territory of the Black Hills in 1776, it was home to the Cheyenne. The Black Hills became a central focus of the Lakota’s culture, and in the treaty of Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868, the U.S. government commemorated the Great Sioux Reservation and protected the land from the European settlement for eternity.
However, the gold rush days of South Dakota would see a shift of this promise from the U.S government as miners flooded the area in search of gold. The Lakota were therefore split into five smaller reservations in western South Dakota, all against the wishes of the Lakota.
This left much of the Black Hills as we know it today as settled by European Americans, which is not the case for most of South Dakota.
