The Dakota tribe lived in the region around Lake Superior before European contact in the 1600’s. In the forest environment they gathered wild rice, hunt and fish. They fought with pride against the Chippewa (Ojibwa) tribe for control of the land and the region. The Dakota tribes were driven to Minnesota, due to the fact that the Ojibwa obtained guns from the French, thus making them more powerful to take over the land. Presently, the western Dakota tribe now resides in South and North Dakota.
