The Great Plains was home to many of the Native American tribes. Some of the most well-known tribes from this area are the Pawnee, the Lakota, and the Cheyenne. While some of these tribes were nomadic, some were also mostly sedentary, growing a few crops for food. Many of these tribes, while very independent, came together in times of war. A great example of this is the Blackfoot confederacy or the combined forces of the Lakota, Cheyenne, and the Arapaho in the Great Sioux of 1867.
