Red Cloud Stands in the Way : (Edwin L Sabin Native American Indian Masterpiece Collection)
The name Sioux comes down from a longer Chippewa word meaning "adder" or "enemy." The Indians who bore this name were the powerful Dakotas-the true Sioux of history. The wide Nation of the Lakota, as these Sioux called themselves, was a league of seven council fires. The four divisions of the Santees lived in Minnesota; the two divisions of the Yanktons lived between them and the Missouri River; the one large division of the Tetons lived in their Dakota country, west of the Missouri River.
