It is located in Ziebach County, South Dakota and on the Reservation the United States set aside for 300 or so Ute Indians
(they were really Anishinabe) in 1907. The settlement is very small and probably very poor. I don't know the demographics
of Thunder Butte, South Dakota nor the income of its citizens. I have used google earth to find this isolated settlement
in the old Cheyenne River Reservation which is 8 miles to the notheast of Iron Lightning. There may be up to 35 housing units in
the small settlement. Thunder Butte's population is probably between 120 and 240. Elevation of the settlement is 2,100 feet
above sea level. Below are several links to photographs of the Anishinabe settlement of Thunder Butte,
