Overview

Made up of three major groups of people who speak Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota, the Sioux have lived in the upper Midwest and Great Plains regions for hundreds of years. In the 1800s, settlers, gold miners, and the U.S. government forced the Sioux off most of their homelands and the sacred Black Hills. But the Sioux fought back and went on to build strong modern communities in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, and Canada. They cherish the traditions, language, and values of their ancestors while looking ahead to a bright future.
