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.
