Three Affiliated Tribes

The Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation is an alternate tribal name of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation of North Dakota. Three Affiliated Tribes is the older of the two names, having been the official name of the nation when they reorganized in 1936. The Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara people have separate languages and tribal identities, but joined together in the late 1800's.
