When most people think of Indians, they most often associate the Lakota tribe's image, as they were semi-nomadic buffalo herders. They lived in tipis and moved from place to place. Most of the early information about Lakota Sioux Indians comes from the journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.
Although the Lakota Indians came from a farming background, they were able to domesticate horses and build tipis in order to give them the freedom to move around. It is thought that white settlers coming in from the east led to the Lakota Indians' westward migration. When Lewis and Clark observed the Lakota Indians in the early 1800s, they found that the Lakota did not farm at all and were wholly dependent on the animals they hunted and the existing plants they harvested.
The three tribes of the Sioux people included the Lakota, sometimes referred to as the Teton; Nakota, sometimes referred to as the Yankton; and Dakota, sometimes referred to as the Santee. The Lakota tribe had seven bands that were called Sicangu (Brule), Oglala, Hunkpapa, Minneconjou, Sihasapa (Blackfeet), Oohenumpa (Two Kettle) and Itazipo (Sans Arc). The Nakota had two bands that were called the Yankton and Yanktonais while the Dakota had four bands that were called Mdewakanton, Wahpekute, Wahpeton and Sisseton.Learn More
