Fort Peck Tribes

The Fort Peck Reservation is an intertribal reservation in Montana which is home to the Dakota, Lakota, and Assiniboine people. The Dakotas, Lakotas, and Assiniboines are historically distinct tribes, but under pressure from the United States in the late 1800's, some bands from these three groups agreed to relocate to Fort Peck, where their descendants live together to this day. The Assiniboine and Sioux people of Fort Peck share a single tribal government.
