Three new watercolor paintingsby Artist in Residence Jessica L.Bryant are now on display at theBen Reifel Visitor Center in Bad-lands National Park.Bryant’s donation of the paint-ings is just the most recent effortin an ongoing partnership betweenBadlands and the artist, whoworked with tribal youth on thePine Ridge Indian Reservationduring her residency.Two of Bryant’s paintings depictscenes from the South Unit of Bad-lands National Park, which is lo-cated on the Pine Ridge IndianReservation and is part of a pro-posed tribal national park.To foster a long-term commit-ment to the tribal national parkidea, Badlands has been buildingconnections with youth in localcommunities. Using science andart together, the hope is to inspireyoung minds while encouragingyouth toward careers in conserva-

tion.“As part of my residency, Iworked with youth at the RedCloud Indian School to help themcreate their own paintings of thesebeautiful, meaningful places thatare located on their tribal lands,”Bryant said. Student work can beviewed at flickr.com/badlandsna-tionalpark.The three paintings—“NorthUnit: Cedar Pass Area,” “Strong-hold Unit: Battle Creek and PlentyStar Table,” and “Palmer CreekUnit: Campsite Location of Na-tional Geographic Society Paleon-tology Dig, Circa 1940”— repre-sent the varied landscapes andareas of historical significance thatcan be found within the park.The rugged beauty of the bad-lands draws visitors from aroundthe world and has inspired artistsfor generations.The striking geologic depositscontain one of the world’s richestfossil beds, and the park’s 244,000acres protect an expanse of mixed-grass prairie. The landscape hasbeen sacred ground to the Lakotapeople for centuries.Postcards and posters of Bryant’s paintings are also avail-able from the Badlands NaturalHistory Association (BNHA) book-store at the visitor center and on-line at badlandsnha.org.Bryant was recently honored byhaving a painting accepted intothe 146th Annual InternationalExhibition of the American Water-color Society in New York. Plansare underway for a 2014 Dahl ArtsCenter exhibit of Bryant’s work re-lated to the South Unit of Bad-lands National Park.
Story by Kyle Partain,NHSRA Times Editor
When asked about their favoritepart of the competition, many highschool rodeo queens will talk aboutthe personal interview or thechance to get on stage and presenttheir prepared speech.South Dakota’s Elsie Fortunedoesn’t miss a beat, however, whenshe emphatically points to thehorsemanship portion as her fa-vorite aspect of the event.“I don’t really like givingspeeches,” she says with a laugh.“I like being around people and just talking with them. No matterhow many I do, interviews neverget any easier for me.”The ranch-raised cowgirl hasspent her entire life horseback, soher comfort with the horseman-ship pattern comes as no surprise. And she’s not the only one whosees the differences between her-self and many of her fellow queencontestants.“She isn’t into all the fancy stuff,but can really nail a horsemanshippattern,” says SDHSRA State Sec-retary Ann Sundermann. “She is avery humble western SouthDakota girl who loves to rope. Sheis really on top of her game rightnow.”Need proof, look no further thanthe Black Hills Stock Show andRodeo this past January. Elsie wonthe 20X Extreme Showcase Rodeowith a 2.8-second run in break-away roping. The rodeo is openonly to the top contestants in eachregion of the state, and Elsie didher best to represent the South-west Region.“I guess you could say I’m hav-ing a pretty good year,” Elsie jokes.The BHSS rodeo is the only oneoffered to high school contestantsduring the winter. Unlike manystates and provinces, SouthDakota offers only a half-dozen orless points rodeos each season.Practice rodeos that start aroundMay of each year offer contestantsa chance to work out the kinks of along winter layoff before real com-petitions begin each year.“We just don’t have a lot of in-door barns to use during the win-ter,” Elsie says. “And the weatherisn’t usually good enough evenduring the spring for us to haveoutdoor rodeos.”That’s a shame for Elsie, whowould rather spend her time rop-ing than doing just about anythingelse. However, she gets plenty of opportunities to get horseback andswing a loop while working on thefamily’s Triangle S Ranch in Inte-rior, S.D.“All of the rodeo horses areranch horses first. We use them onthe ranch every day,” she says.“My whole family has alwaysbeen into roping, and bronc riding.But I can’t really do bronc riding,at least not in competition. I get todo a little sometimes when myhorses get a little broncy aroundthe ranch.”While she might not enjoy theidea of giving speeches or doing in-terviews, Elsie is a natural repre-sentative for the sport thanks toher life-long involvement withrodeo.“I do enjoy traveling to rodeosand meeting a lot of great people,”Elsie says. “That never gets old.”A senior in 2012-13, Elsie won’tget the chance to defend hercrown, but she will get the chanceto defend her other state champi-onship – in breakaway roping.At the 2012 SDHSRA State Fi-nals, Elsie recorded times in allthree rounds to finish sixth the av-erage and jump to the top spot inthe final year-end standings. Shefailed to record a time in break-away roping at the NHSFR, andfinished 21st in the NHSRA QueenContest in Rock Springs, Wyo.While there’s no question thatshe’ll continue to rope – she’sheaded to Northwest College inPowell, Wyo., on a rodeo scholar-ship – she’s undecided about herfuture in queen contests.“I like the queening, but it reallyis a lot of work,” she says. “I don’tknow that I could go to college,rope in college rodeos and be aqueen all at the same time. MaybeI’ll come back to it after school.”Once she gets to college, Elsieplans to major in graphic commu-nications.“That’s a fancy word for photog-raphy,” she says. “My grandma isan artist, so I guess she kind of in-fluenced me in that. Photographyreally relaxes me, I guess. My rolemodel is Alisha Barry (a rodeo pho-tographer from South Dakota).”One thing she doesn’t plan ondoing in school is dusting off herbarrel saddle or her goat string.“I don’t know that I would evenremember how to run barrels or tiegoats,” Elsie says. “Hopefully, I canstick to breakaway and team rop-ing.”

DENR recognizes WR/LJ for drinking water compliance
The operation specialists of theWest River/Lyman-Jones havemade it happen for not just oneyear, but for ten consecutiveyears.”To qualify for the Decade of Drinking Water Excellence Award,public water systems and theirsystem operation specialists had tomeet all of the following require-ments for the past ten consecutiveyears:•compliance monitoring and re-porting,•drinking water standards, and•certification requirements.On November 24th, SouthDakota Game & Fish received a re-port from two concerned citizensregarding suspicious hunting ac-tivity within the Conata Basin,which is located in the northwestpart of Badlands National Park.Park rangers conducted an inves-tigation and discovered a bloodtrail measuring over 700 yards.Two Rapid City residents, Lance VanZee and Todd Elson were inter-viewed as suspects in the case.These interviews resulted inboth men admitting to havingkilled two mule deer inside thepark.Rangers confiscated the headsand capes of both deer along with

a rifle used by Elson. VanZee andElson were charged with misde-meanor Lacey Act violations, re-sulting in $2,000 in fines and resti-tution totaling $3,000.This is the second successfulLacey Act conviction of illegalhunting activities at Badlands Na-tional Park since January of thisyear, when rangers and U.S. Fishand Wildlife Service officers closeda 2010 buffalo poaching case.The Lacey Act protects bothplants and wildlife by creatingcivil and criminal penalties for awide array of violations.It prohibits trade in wildlife,fish, and plants that have been il-legally taken, transported or sold.
