Sihasapa

Sihasapa

The Sihasapa or "Blackfoot Sioux" are a division of the Titonwan, or Teton (also known as Lakota) Sioux.

Sihasapa is the Lakota word for "Blackfoot", whereas Siksiká has the same meaning in the Blackfoot language. Therefore, both nations have the same English name and sometimes are confused with one another.

The Sihasapa lived in the western Dakotas on the Great Plains, and consequently are among the Plains Indians.
