This piece by Kathy Kelly depicts a Native American Indian woman on horseback. Dozens of native nations lived on the Great Plains including the Sioux Indians, also known as the Lakota or Dakota.
These Native Americans were nomadic and occupied territory in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North and South Dakota, however they were also known to live in parts of Nebraska, Illinois, and Montana.
Once the Sioux had access to horses in the 16th Century; their diet was predominantly buffalo meat since they were then able to keep up with the buffalo migration patterns. Their diet also included elk, antelope, turkey, and deer meat.
The Sioux are known for their distinguished looks. Their hair is very black and it is worn long. Like other Native American tribes, they also have high cheekbones.
