Plains Indians

The name of the Plains Indians (also Plains Indians ) denotes cultures of nomads who lived in tipis on the vast plains of North America. They included, among others, the Lakota, Cheyenne, Absarokee, Kiowa, Comanche, Blackfoot and parts of the Apaches. After the Spaniards had left on their expeditions in North America, some horses, these wild and found in the prairie an ideal habitat. They were made by the Indians to farm animals and made their life much more comfortable: Only with the horse came to a considerable number of people permanently in the vastness of the " Plains "; for a sedentary life but they were still not suitable.

As the eastern U.S. by European immigrants and their descendants was populated, there were veritable migrations among the Plains Indians. Weaker nations of the East, such as the Sioux and the Cheyenne were driven by the powerful tribes to the west. They arrived mid to late 18th century in the "Wild West " and got there in part to significant peoples.
