The treaty as a whole and in relation to the 1851 agreement represented an abandonment of earlier considerations of tribal customs and instead showed « the government`s heavier attitude towards tribal nations and… the desire to equate the Sioux with ownership agreements and social customs.  According to one source, « animosities about the treaty emerged almost immediately » when a group of Miniconjous were informed that they were no longer welcome to act at Fort Laramie, located south of their newly built territory. Despite the fact that the treaty contained no provision that tribes could not travel outside their country, but only that they would not occupy permanently outside the country. The only trip expressly prohibited by the treaty was that of the white settlers on the reserve.  The traditional social system extended beyond human interaction in supernatural empires.  It is thought that Wakȟáŋ Thka (« Great Spirit/Great Mystery ») created the universe and embodied everything as one in the universe.  The defining symbol of the Sioux religion is the Wakȟaŋ « holy, » which visually represents the concept that everything is intertwined in the universe.  The stories of the creation of the O`hethi`akwia describe how different spirits were born from Wakȟáŋ Thka.  Black Elk describes the relationship with Wakȟáŋ Thka as: 1805: 1805 Dakota surrendered 100,000 hectares of land at the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers. Us Army Lt. Zebulon Pike negotiated the agreement so that the U.S.
government could build a military fortress there. Of the seven Indian leaders who participated in the negotiations, only two signed the treaty. The name « Sioux » was taken from French in English in the 1760s. It is in abbreviation of the Nadouessioux, which was first attested in 1640 by Jean Nicolet.  The name is sometimes derived from an exonym ojibwe for the Sioux, which means « little snakes » (compares nadowe « large snakes » used for Iroquois).  The spelling in -x is due to the French plural marker.  The proto-Algonquian form `na`towe`wa, meaning `North Iroquoian`, has reflexes in several girl languages that refer to a small rattlesnake (massasauga, Sistrurus).  Another explanation is the derivation of an exonym na`towe`ssiw (plural na`towe`ssiwak), a verb `a`towe means `speaking a foreign language`.  Ojibwe`s current term for Sioux and related groups is Bwaanag (Singular Bwaan), which means « roaster. »   This probably relates to the cooking style of the Sioux used in the past.
This drawing was made by Frank Mayer in July 1851. Mayer camped with the government delegation of contract negotiators in Traverse des Sioux. He described the camp in his diary: After years of struggle, the Sioux Valley Dakota Nation in Manitoba was granted autonomy on July 1, 2014. It was the first Aboriginal nation in Manitoba and on the prairies to self-administer. This agreement gives the Dakota Valley Sioux Nation more control over its own affairs, including housing, education, public safety, financial management and more. The Treaty of Fort Laramie (also the Sioux Treaty of 1868) was an agreement between the United States and the Oglala, Miniconjou and Brulé groups of Lakota, Yanktonai Dakota and Arapaho Nation, after the failure of the first Treaty of Fort Lara, signed in 1851.
