The Great Plains was home to many of the Native American tribes. Some of the most well-known tribes from this area are the Pawnee, the Lakota, and the Cheyenne. While some of these tribes were nomadic, some were also mostly sedentary, growing a few crops for food. Many of these tribes, while very independent, came together in times of war. A great example of this is the Blackfoot confederacy or the combined forces of the Lakota, Cheyenne, and the Arapaho in the Great Sioux of 1867.

When archaeologists excavated Mesa Verde in the late 19th century, they found a collection of mugs so vast that they named the discovery site the Mug House. Because artifacts like these are so rare and so intrinsic to our understanding of a past culture, according to preservation law, prehistoric archaeological artifacts are actually considered a part of the built environment -- something typically reserved for architecture.
