I is true that the whites broke most of the treaties with the Indians, However the Sioux stole the Dakotas. The Dakotas historically belonged to the Crow, The Sioux came in and kicked them out, Which is why the Crow allied with the whites against the Sioux.

Thanks so much for posting this Tom.  The tragic, indeed horrendous,  history of  the U.S. government/citizens  (consisting primarily of ethically European settlers) stealing land and ignoring treaties is shameful.    Everyone of us lives on stolen land.  (Please spare me the excuse that what great, great grandpa and grandma did isn't your fault.  The failure to acknowledge that the genocide of indigenous people is an under told and accurate history of the U.S.  and is central to understanding that the bedrock U.S. philosophy  was and remains might makes right.)
Please check out this link  https://www.nps.gov/nepe/learn/historyculture/the-treaty-era.htm for a brief overview of false promises.  Or, better yet, if you are metaphorically standing with the courageous men, women, and children of Standing Rock consider a drive thirty miles south to the Nez Perce National Historical Park and become acquainted with the rich cultural history of  the Nimíipuu .Rose Huskey
