Pine Ridge, Pine Ridge Reservation
From doing research on the internet, i have learned at more than one website that the Pine Ridge Reservation may have a population that exceeds 28,000. Of course, that would mean the Anishinabe-Dakota cdp of Pine Ridge has a much larger population than is claimed. Latest population count (2010 census) put the population of Pine Ridge at 3,308. Pine Ridge is really not a city but is a CDP or census designated place. It covers 3.2 sq. mi. It's zip code is 57770. There is a total of 742 housing units in the cdp. That gives the cdp of Pine Ridge a 4.0 persons per housing unit size but it is probably higher than that. Of the population of 3,308, 94% are Native American, 3% are white, 1% mixed, and 1% Hispanic.
The cdp of Pine Ridge is the capital of the Pine Ridge Reservation. Economically, the settlement is supposedly not doing very well. However, since the Reservations government is located in Pine Ridge, and there are numerous businesses in the settlement, including an Ace Hardware Store, Pizza Hut, Subway, Taco Johns and many other businesses, not to mention schools, it means there are many jobs in the settlement. According to the latest estimate, around 61% of the settlements citizens live below the poverty line. That could be an indication the population of Pine Ridge is in fact much higher than 3,308. Compared to Browning which is twice as large as Pine Ridge, there are little differences. Compared to Poplar, Pine Ridge is not as well off economically. Both settlements have around the same population. Poplar, however, is about a third non Indian. The settlement is especially beautiful during the spring, summer, and atumn. Below are several links to photographs of the Anishinabe-Dakota settlement of Pine Ridge.
