Sioux

  • The Sioux Nation is made up of three main tribes: Lakota, Nakota, and Dakota.


Clothing

Clothing

  • Most Sioux clothing was made from buffalo hind and other animal skins.

  • Sioux women sewed clothing together using needles made from sharpened bone.

  • Clothing was decorated with porcupine quills, horsehair, fox tails, and beads.

Food

  • Buffalo provided the Sioux with their main source of food.

  • In the winter, when there were less buffalo, the Sioux ate jerky.

  • Jerky is buffalo meat that has been dried in the sun.


Shelter

Shelter

  • The Sioux lived in tepees.

  • Tepees are cone shaped shelters covered with buffalo hides.

  • Because the Sioux moved from place to place following the buffalo, they needed a home that was easy to take apart and move.


Shelter1

Shelter

  • The Sioux used a travois to carry their tepees from place to place.

  • A travois is a sled like device used to carry people and belonging.


Winter count

Winter Count

  • The Native Americans of the Great Plains kept records using a winter count.

  • A winter count is a record of the past recorded on buffalo hides using pictures to represent events.

  • Tribal leaders would chose the single most important event of each year, and add one picture representing that event to the hide painting.

  • Events that might be represented were the birth of children, victories over an enemy, or unique weather occurrences.


Horses

Horses

  • After Columbus discovered the New World, many European countries sent expeditions in search of gold, silver and spices.

  • These explorers brought horses with them to America to help them search for riches.

  • Native Americans had never seen horses before.

  • For the Native Americans that lived on the plains, horses made hunting buffalo much easier.

  • Horses were often used to trade with other Native American groups.
