"I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation. We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches would do us no good. We could not take them with us to the other world. We do not want riches. We want peace and love." Chief Red Cloud

Sioux/dakotas, espalhavam-se pelos estados de Dakota do Norte e do Sul, no centro-norte dos Estados Unidos. Eram os mais agressivos contra os brancos e tinham cerimônias que incluíam rituais de tortura como prova de bravura. Num desses rituais, mostrado no filme Um Homem Chamado Cavalo (1970), o índio tinha a pele atravessada por pinos de madeira presos a cordas, que eram estendidas para erguer o corpo até gerar dilacerações. Os sioux resistiram aos brancos até 1890, quando foram massacrados.
