The question is too general. There were plains tribal groups who historically celebrated the traditional form of the Sun Dance faith; tribal groups who still conduct Sun Dances today; plus, genizaro affairs who engage in what can only be described as a "Pan-Native American"/"Native Pan-American" semblance of the original plains Sun Dance. Historically, most Plains Indian tribes did participate in the Sun Dance. In fact, it is easier to ask which plains tribes did not participate in the Sun Dance--such a list would be shorter.
