Pine Ridge city on reservation to get its first street signs


PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) — The city of Pine Ridge is getting street signs for the first time in its history.

The community on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is the headquarters for the Oglala Sioux tribe and dates to the late 1800s, but the only signs in the town have been stop signs.

Village Vice President Derek Janis recently discovered during a trip to the local land office that, despite the lack of road signs, the roads all have names. A tribal map specialist, Troy Ferguson, has been working for years to catalog them.
