  1. Cheyenne

    The Cheyenne are one of the groups of indigenous people of the Great Plains and their language is of the Algonquian language family. The Cheyenne comprise two Native American groups, the Só'taeo'o and the Tsétsêhéstâhese. These tribes merged in the early 19th century. Today the Cheyenne people are split into two federally recognized groups: Southern Cheyenne, who are enrolled in the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in Oklahoma, and the Northern Cheyenne, who are enrolled in the Northern Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Montana. The Cheyenne lived in the area of what is now Minnesota at the time of their first contact with the Europeans. Also, they were often allied with the Lakota and Arapaho. They migrated west across the Mississippi River and into North and South Dakota in the early 18th century. They adopted horse culture and developed a more centralized authority, through ritual ceremonies and structure, than other Plains Indians in the 19th century. Having settled the Black Hills of South Dakota and the Powder River Country of present-day Montana, they introduced the horse culture to Lakota bands about 1730.
