The Sioux People Crossword
The Sioux were the largest tribe of Native Americans to ever grace the Great Plains. They were a sassy bunch, but the one thing they had in common was a unified landmass, which at its peak was one of the most pristine regions on Earth. For a brief spell in the early 1800s, the Sioux people were an independent nation. During the waning days of the nascent US of A, the Sioux were amongst the best fighters in the war for the prairie. In 1889 the Sioux were incorporated into the states of North and South Dakota, thereby putting them in the same room as the aforementioned neanderthals. Today, they are an amalgam of a variety of different tribal clans and echelons, some of which have merged and some of which have retreated to the hinterlands, a la Xmas eve in ye olde West. Of course, not everyone is a fan of their kinfolks, and the recent axing of the Sioux by President Trump has done nothing but exacerbate the already tumultuous state. Nonetheless, the Sioux are the oldest state in the union, and despite their shortfalls they are still a jolly bunch of sills. Among their best traits is the ability to scoff at the slightest bit of brashness.
