Sioux

The Sioux can be found throughout the northern Plains, including North and South Dakotas, northern Nebraska, eastern Wyoming, and southeastern Montana.    The arrival of white Americans following the Louisiana Purchase lead to an end to native Sioux life due to the depletion of the buffalo.     There are three native Sioux dialects, Dakota, Lakota and Nakota. Biggest and most famous of these is Lakota.
