Lakota people

The Lakota, natively known as the Lakȟóta (pronounced [laˈkˣota]), also known as Teton, (from Thítȟuŋwaŋ) and Teton Sioux. They speak the Lakota language, the westernmost of the three closely related languages that belong to the Siouan language family, occupying lands in both North and South Dakota. According to some historical sources the Lakota were at one point in their history part of a confederation of seven related Sioux tribes, the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ or Seven Council Fires, and as such are one of the Indigenous peoples of the Great Plains of North America.
