Native American Culture

The Native Americans have lived in this region for hundreds of years, before any other people lived here. They suffered greatly from disease and assimilation. During the westward movement in America, many Native American tribes were pushed off their land and stripped of their culture. Several tribes resisted and uprisings occurred. The last major uprising occurred with the Sioux Indians at the Battle of Wounded Knee.
