History: South Dakota was home to indigenous Native American tribes before the arrival of European explorers. The French were first to lay claim to the area. They established fur trading posts with the Native Indians in the mid-1700s. In 1803, the United States acquired a significant amount of land west of the Mississippi from France with the Louisiana Purchase. South Dakota, North Dakota, and parts of Montana and Wyoming were designated the U.S. Dakota Territory in 1861. Both North and South Dakota were admitted to the Union on November 2, 1889; there is no record of which state document was signed first, so North Dakota was declared the 39th state and South Dakota the 40th state by alphabetical default.
