The Sioux Nation is a large group of Native American tribes that traditionally lived in the Great Plains.
The Sioux lived in the Northern Great Plains in lands that are today the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
The Indians embrace their unique culture very much.
Tribes traveled all over the plains. However, they sometimes ended up in other states for short periods of time.
The Sioux lived in teepees made from long wooden poles and covered with bison hides.
Teepees could be taken down and set up quickly. This enabled entire villages to move on a regular basis.
