The Sioux Indians were just one of the many different people who lived on the Plains. Others were the Osage, Crow, Cree, Blackfoot and the Pawnee. The name given to all the Sioux people was the Sioux Nation. There were 25,000 people in the Sioux nation and it was very hard to organise them all. To help organise the people the Nation was divided into 7 tribes and the 7 tribes all had 6 sub-tribes.

Each tribe had a Chief; he was usually the bravest, strongest and cleverest man in the tribe. It was his job to keep the people in his tribe safe and decided when it was time to move to find more food. All the people of the tribe would listen to him. The Chief was a very important man.
