The Sioux! Before the mid-16th century the Sioux resided near the area of Lake Superior.
Their name “Sioux” is an abbreviation of the name Nadouessioux (pronounced Nah-do-sue) meaning adders or enemies, this name was originally given to the Sioux by he Ojibwa. Economy The Sioux would collect wild rice and other foods, they also hunted deer and buffalo, they even would spear fish from canoes. The would trade bison for corn farmed by the farming tribes of the plains. They raided tribes frequently, including the Mandan, Arikara, Hidatsa and the Pawnee.

Two to four Shirt Wearers, who were the voice of the tribe, would be elected by the Wi?háša It?á??ha?. The Sioux is not a singular group of Native Americans, in fact they are made up of several different tribes, including the Lakota, Nakota, and the Dakota.Culture The Sioux has a lot of information on their dances. A traditional dance usually starts with a high pitch led by a soloist singing a phrase that is then repeated by a group. Songs only use vocables, syllabic utterances with no lexical meaning.The Dakota (One the several parts of the Sioux) Flag Song begins special events, such as powwows, and is not accompanied by a dance.
A powwow is a held by multiple Native American communities that make up the Sioux . Such as the Lakota, the Dakota, and the Nakota Geography The Sioux lived in what is now Nebraska, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
