Thunder Valley is located in the northern part of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation between Sharps Corner and Rockyford. We are just a few miles off of being physically located in the geographic center of the Oglala Lakota Nation. The heart of this winding valley was formed over thousands of years as Porcupine Creek carved its way through the grass covered hills at the edge of the badlands of South Dakota. It was long ago in this region the Lakota people originated having spread out and flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries. The origins of the name Thunder Valley have long been forgotten and until recently only the elders and old ranchers still used the name Thunder Valley. Now the name is synonymous with an amazing renaissance of traditional values and cultural pride.rn
