Only Sioux Remained in Iowa
This video player uses Microsoft Silverlight.
By 1848 the Sauk, Mesquakies, Winnebagoes and Pottawattamie had all left Iowa for reservations. The only Indians left in the state were the Sioux in northwestern Iowa. Anxious pioneers, who built their homesteads far ahead of established communities, found themselves in danger from roving bands of Sioux who still considered northwestern Iowa part of their hunting ground.
