Like the Teton Sioux, the Cheyenne originally resided in Minnesota but settled in North and South Dakota in the 18th century. They eventually split into two divisions--Northern and Southern--that were separated by the Arkansas River. As with many Plains Indians, the Sun Dance, which called for a renewal of the natural world, played an integral role in Cheyenne society.
