With a herd of curious buffalo watching nearby a clean and reliable source of water has been established at the Tatanka Isnala Ranch near Slim Buttes on the Pine Ridge Reservation. With the help of our donors, the Red Cloud Tiyospaye was able to get a drilling company from Martin, SD. to come out to their land and install a well. After 7 unsuccessful tries, they finally found water at just over 100′ into the earth. Although the ranch already has a lake that has remained filled year round, this well will ensure that clean water will be available for the buffalo and for members of the tiyospaye as more of them move out to the ranch.
