How did the culture of the Plains Indians, specifically the Lakota Sioux, change in the late 19th century?Since the movement to reservation camps, things have changed a great deal in the Lakota Sioux society. Prior to the movement the Sioux were accustomed to living off of the area, making garments out of conceals and calfskin, and chasing for their nourishment. Presently a large portion of the Sioux live on reservations in South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, and some in the northern piece of Montana. The greater part of them have some major difficulty simply attempting to survive in light of the fact that the way they use to live was the main thing they knew, and they didn't know any viable methods for getting sustenance other than chasing. The Sioux tribe was destroyed due to their territory being stripped from them. In any case they keep a percentage of the society alive by dressing like their precursors did in the past furthermore by having "pow wow's" which are similar to services where the Sioux Indians woulddevour, sing, and move. The white men were making the Indians talk English, and figuring out how to things their direction. Driving them to surrender their societies and all that they knew.
