Harney Peak in the Black Hills will keep its current name at least through the summer, as activists work to reach consensus on a new name. The U.S. Board on Geographic Names stalled at its April meeting and now has continued the matter to August. If area tribes can agree to Black Elk Peak as the new name, the board is inclined to make the change.
