Sioux County History

Sioux County consists of 1,094 square miles
Located along the southern border of North Dakota.
Its eastern border is the Missouri River.  The county lies entirely within the Stan ding Rock Indian Reservation, forming the northernmost 30 percent of the reservation. (The balance of the reservation is in South Dakota). It is the only county in North Dakota that is entirely within an Indian reservation. 

The county was created by proclamation of Governor Louis B. Hanna on September 3, 1914 and named after the Native American Lakota, whose historic territory included this area and much more. The county government was first organized on September 12, 1914.

As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,153.
