ROSEBUD
ROSEBUDLindsey Hays and Andrew Hays have lived in Rosebud since July 2014. The couple was drawn to the area after Andrew spent time in South Dakota while he working as an instructor with Teach for America. Now a manager of teacher leadership development working with elementary school teachers, Andrew has returned to Rosebud with his wife who works as a clinical dietician at the Rosebud Comprehensive Healthcare Facility. They say a big part about what they love about the area is that although it is rural, they love the scenic beauty.
PINE RIDGE
PINE RIDGEThe Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota is isolated from the surrounding non-reservation communities. Rapid City, the largest city where many area residents do the majority of essential shopping, is 100 miles from the village of Pine Ridge. Few grocery stores exist on the reservation, with one or no stores in some villages of the nearly 3,500 square mile reservation. Several days each month, the Oglala Sioux Tribe Food Distribution Commodity Warehouse will set up a remote food bank in villages like Kyle and Wanblee so residents don't have to travel as far as the village of Pine Ridge for food.
