Transcript of Lakota Indians
The Lakota best adapted by becoming nomads and following the Tatanka herds.
The women would cook and watch the children, while the men would travel and hunt. They were a very peaceful people. The Lakota had very similar ways with the Sioux and the Dakota tribes. They all lived in the same region and did the same things including hunting, fishing, gathering, and surviving off the land and off the tatanka herds. Sometimes the Lakota were called the Lakota-Sioux tribe or the Lakota-Dakota tribe. Relationships The White Men When the Europeans first came to the Great Plains they would kill the buffalo for the fur and scull only. This made the Indians extremely mad because the Indians would use every single part of the animal, from the fur to the bones, for survival. They respected every part of what nature provided for them. Buffalo Skulls The Cultural Aspects The Lakota mostly wore buffalo or deer hide.
A popular food that the Lakota ate was bison.
To commemorate the dead the Lakota would smoke the peace pipe then give everybody a small stone.
Some famous people from the tribe were Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, Lame Deer, and John Two-Hawks.
There are currently 70,000 registered Lakota Indians, but less than half continue to speak the ancestral language. They are forced to live on five reservations and the US government wants to reduce that number.
