Explanation:

[STC001178] The year 1861 marked the establishment of the Dakota Territory by the United States of America. This region of territory would one day be partitioned into the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming. It was given its name after the Sioux people of the Dakota tribe, a subgroup of the Sioux that formerly inhabited the region. The word for “fellow” or “ally” in the Dakota language is where the name comes from. After gold was discovered in the territory in 1874, the Sioux fiercely resisted U.S. efforts to force them off their ancestral lands, including the 1876 Battle of the Little Bighorn in which war leader Crazy Horse and his allies defeated George Custer and his 200 men. Later on, the territory was decreased in size and partitioned into what would become the states of North Dakota and South Dakota. In 1889, North Dakota and South Dakota became the 39th and 40th states to join the Union.
