About the Lakota

From Wikipedia, "Also known as the Teton Sioux (from 'Thítȟuŋwaŋ'), they are one of the three Sioux tribes of Plains. Their current lands are in North and South Dakota.

The name Lakota comes from the Lakota autonym, Lakota 'feeling affection, friendly, united, allied'.

The seven bands or 'sub-tribes' of the Lakota are:
Sičháŋǧu (Brulé, Burned Thighs), Oglála ("They Scatter Their Own"), Itázipčho (Sans Arc, Without Bows), Húŋkpapȟa (Hunkpapa, "End Village", Camps at the End of the Camp Circle), Mnikȟówožu (Miniconjou, "Plant Near Water", Planters by the Water), Sihásapa ("Blackfeet, or Blackfoot"), Oóhenuŋpa (Two Kettles).

The Lakota speak Lakȟótiyapi - the Lakota language, the westernmost of three closely related languages that belong to the Siouan language family."
