WIND CAVE NATIONAL PARK, S.D. (AP) - A new sign greeting visitors to Wind Cave National Park in the Black Hills was written by American Indian tribes.

The National Park Service says it’s the result of meetings dating back to 2006 between the park and tribes with cultural or historical ties to the cave.

The federal agency says a previous sign included inaccuracies and was culturally insensitive. It was removed in 2006.

The park service says the new sign tells the story of the cave’s significance in the words of indigenous people.
