Dakota Pathways Resources

The region we call South Dakota has not always been home to its present population. In very early times, Mammoth Hunters lived and roamed the area. After them came the people of the corn, Paleo-Indian tribes that moved up into the region from Mexico, following the rivers that supplied water for their crops of corn, squash and beans. Later, the Mandan, Arikara and Dakota people moved into the region. This episode looks at our history through the eyes of paleontologists, scientists who explore the past by examining the remains of ancient cultures.
