Campground Report: Juniper, Theodore Roosevelt Nat’l Park, North Unit, ND

I hear that they have some interesting healing traditions and fascinating history and traditions to hand down to us “latecomer” americans.I agree that these areas such as “badlands” must have seemed intimidating and frightening to the first explorers to this land.

      I’ve come across various information about various cultures of Native Americans in various museums and exhibits along the way, but have encountered, to my knowledge any Native Americans.
