On-A-Slant village, in Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park is a MUST to visit. Handicap accessible, and just a short walk from the Visitor Center to the 5 reconstructed earth lodges. The small museum at the Visitor Center tells more about the Mandan Indians' culture and...More

The “On a Slant” village was wonderful and informative. It makes one realize and appreciate Native Americans, specifically the Mandan tribe, who once created permanent villages.
