Harney Peak Stone


This sacred mountain located at 103˚ W 23’/43˚ N 53’.  Harney Peak, in the Black Hills of South Dakota is where Black Elk (of the famous book on the Native American tragedy Black Elk Speaks) had his famous vision at age nine.  Harney Peak is the tallest mountain, on the U.S mainland, east of the Rocky Mountains and leaves a strong impression on the spirits of the peoples of the Great Plains.  In 1985, this stone was gathered from off the mountain, during a Sun Dance Season, by Dr. Chuck Ross, Superintendent of Fort Yates, North Dakota School District; the Fort Yates where Sitting Bull was murdered.
