cattle ranches, North Dakota gets its name from the Dakota
division of the Sioux Indians who lived on the plains before the
Europeans arrived. North Dakota was one of the last areas of the
frontier to be settled by non-Native Americans, and even today,
it's not a highly populated state.
If you've ever wondered
what it would have been like to live on a farm in the early
1900s, you could get a good idea by going to Sodbuster Days, a
two-day event held at Fort Ransom State Park in North Dakota.
During Sodbuster Days visitors can see what farm life was like
before electricity. They can watch demonstrations of elevating
grain, sawing wood, grinding corn, and pumping water. They can
also watch blacksmiths at work and see how a rim is put on a
wagon wheel. The United Tribes Powwow in Bismarck, North Dakota,
has been held every year since 1969. The United Tribes are the
five tribes in North Dakota: the Spirit Lake, the Sisseton-Wahpton
Sioux, the Standing Rock Sioux, the Turtle Mountain Band of
Chippewa, and the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold. More
than 1,500 traditional dancers perform to more than 40 drum
groups at the United Tribes Powwow.
