Beautiful Portraits of Chiefs of the Sioux Native American Tribe
By | July 26, 2017
The Sioux are a Native American tribe and First Nations band government in North America, comprising three major divisions based on language variety and subculture: the Santee, the Yankton-Yanktonai, and the Lakota.
The Santee reside in the extreme east of the Dakotas, Minnesota and northern Iowa. The Yankton and Yanktonai, collectively also referred to by the endonym Wičhíyena, reside in the Minnesota Riverarea. They are considered to be the middle Sioux, and have in the past been erroneously classified as Nakota. The Lakota, also called Teton, are the westernmost Sioux, known for their hunting and warrior culture.
Today, the Sioux maintain many separate tribal governments scattered across several reservations, communities, and reserves in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Montana in the United States; and Manitoba and southern Saskatchewan in Canada.
