and Oglala and others.
The first people in South Dakota
were hunters and gatherers who
may have appeared as early as
15,000 to 20,000 years ago.
The inhabitants of what is now
South Dakota foraged for food,
made stone weapons, and hunted
big game animals, including the
mammoth. This way of life ended
around 8000 BC.
The inhabitants lived by farming
and others lived by hunting also by
gathering food from plants.
