Native American Map - Migration of Tribes
Many of the Indian tribes migrated to different areas following contact with the Europeans and made homes throughout the North American continent. The introduction of the horse, leading to the Indian Horse Culture, by the Europeans made the area of the Great Plains very appealing due to the plentiful buffalo that roamed across the prairies and plains.

  • Tribes including the Winnebago, Iowa, Otoe, Omaha, Kansa, Osage, Sioux or Dakota, Pawnee, Hidatsa, Crow and the Mandan people migrated to different areas ranging from the northeast, the southeast, the Plains and Northern California.
