The Lakota Indians gave the Badlands their name, indicating clearly the harsh nature of this unforgiving yet beautiful region. Situated partially in North Dakota, (as well as in southwestern South Dakota), the Badlands consist of 244,000 acres of sharp buttes, spires, mesas, and pinnacles of rock, all of which are intermixed with prairies. In 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt designated the region as Badlands National Monument, officially protecting the region from all development. In 1978, the region in South Dakota was expanded and re-designated as Badlands National Park, further protecting the National Monument. Inspired by the protection efforts placed on this land, Anderson Design Group created a hand-drawn illustration of a herd of bison, natives to the Badlands prairies. A great take-home gift or souvenir from a trip to Badlands, this artwork is available as an art print, canvas banner, or metal sign.
