Knife River Indian Village National Historic Site is located in western North Dakota in Mercer County just north of the town of Stanton.

The 1,750-acre site, established in 1974, honors the history of the Northern Plains Indians. Archaeologists intimate that the area was inhabited for more than 8,000 years culminating with a 500-year span of Hidatsa earthlodge village habitation.

Circular basins, some 40-feet wide, are the signature of the site.
