History of North Dakota

History of North Dakota

An historic North Dakota home

The first people who called this place home were nomadic hunters and gatherers. Native Americans settled the land several thousand years ago and the first Europeans to see this land didn’t arrive until the 18th century, when they established trade with some of the tribal nations. Trading posts were established and the fur trade began to pick up. The land became a U.S. territory in 1803 as part of the Louisiana purchase. Then in 1861, it became a part of the Dakota Territory, which included South Dakota and much of Montana and Wyoming. Shortly thereafter, North Dakota gained statehood in 1889 –and the population increased thanks to the arrival of the railroads. The name North Dakota is fitting, and comes from the Dakota/Lakota (also known as Sioux) people who have long lived on land. They called themselves Dakota, which means allies or friends.
