North Lakotah is a state in the midwestern region of the United States, and runs along the US border with Canada and Winnipeg. It is one of the largest states in the US, but has one of the smallest populations. Lakotah is part of the Great Plains region, and is an agricultural giant. The state was formed by a desperate U.S. that was trying to stop the Sioux tribes from rebelling during the First Pacific War.


First Pacific War

During the First Pacific War, much of the US military was out in Asia and not in the continental U.S. Without a U.S. military presence, the Native American tribes had less to fear. After requests for territory or statehood were denied, several Sioux tribes banded together and formed a rebellion. Led by Sitting Bull, the tribes obliterated the US military in the Battle of Little Bighorn, killing US commander Robert Todd Lincoln. Without a presence to stop them, the Native Americans ravaged the Midwest, raiding farms and taking over agricultural areas. When the Native American tribes were on Minnesota's doorstep, new Minnesota governor John S. Pillsbury asked for the US government for assisstance. Weakened after the Battle of Little Bighorn and subsequent raids, the US attempted to negotiate with the tribes.


Sitting Bull, the first governor of the Territory of Lakotah

Negotiations began in late 1876. The Native Americans demanded an area sprawling across the Midwest, which had an area of 200,000 sq km. The US had refused this at first, but Sitting Bull threatened military action. Forced by the Sioux, the Lakotah Treaty was signed in mid 1877, creating the Territory of Lakotah.
