The four communities in Minn. are: Shakopee Mdewakanton, south of the Twin Cities Prairie Island - near Red Wing Lower Sioux -near Redwood Falls Upper Sioux - near the city of Granite Falls There are three main reasons why there are less Sioux in Minnisotathan there might be. 1) Starting around 1640 the Ojibwe came in contact with the French.Through their friendship with the French traders, the Ojibwe gainedguns. They drove their traditional enemies the Sioux to the westand out of much of Minnisota. 2)Smallpox. Around 1780 smallpox reached the Great Plains. TheComanche got it from the Spanish who brought it to the Shoshone ,their close relatives. From there it spread north across theplains. By October 22nd, 1781,it was at a Hudson's Bay Company poston the North Saskatchewan River. It is recorded in at leastthirteen different winter counts kept by plains Indians in theyears 1779-83. Usually at least 1/3-1/2 of the population died. 3) The original Minnesota Dakota Community was established bytreaty with the US in 1851. The treaty set aside a 10-mile widestrip of land on both sides of the Minnesota River as the permanenthome of the Dakota. After the U.S.-Dakota Conflict of 1862, alltreaties were torn up and the Dakota were forced from their homesin the state.
