What is the population of the Sioux today?

In Feb., 1973, about 200 supporters, mostly Sioux, of the American Indian Movement seized control of the hamlet of Wounded Knee, S.Dak., demanding U.S. Senate investigations of Native American conditions. The occupation lasted 70 days, during which about 300 persons were arrested by federal agents. In 1979 the Sioux were awarded $105 million for the taking of their lands, resolving a legal action begun in 1923. Today they constitute one of the largest Native American groups, living mainly on reservations in Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana; the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota is the second largest in the United States. Many are engaged in farming and ranching, including the raising of bison. The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux have a large casino on their reservation in Minnesota, but Oglala efforts to establish one at impoverished Pine Ridge have met with only partial success. Indian Country Today, a successful Native American newspaper, was started at Pine Ridge in 1981; it is now based in Rapid City, S.Dak. In 1990 there were more than 100,000 Sioux in the United States and more than 10,000 in Canada.

Who are the lumbee native Americans?

They're in North Carolina in Lumberton. Their is no agreement of where they descended from. Their name comes from the Lumber River. They are recognized as Croaton Indians by the state of North Carolina.

What weapons did the Catawba tribe use?

The Lumbee people used the same weapons as any Colonial or American person did. The Lumbee/Croatan have no native American Indian language, have no Indian words or names and have never spoken any native American language. The people now calling themselves Lumbee are a mixed race group who are mostly White-Black with a smidge of Native blood (of indeterminate tribal affiliation). They had to downplay their African or mixed heritage and highlight their "Native American" identity because of the intense racism in the past. They have been identified as mixed ancestry from the 1700s and were speaking ENGLISH even in the earliest historical references. A considerable amount of genealogical research shows the majority of the founding "Lumbee" families descend from free black males and white females that came down from early Virginia settlements. They participated in colonial life as "individuals" not as any recognized tribe. Paying taxes, buying property, mustering in colonial and American militias same as all other colonials. Early colonial records list Lumbee ancestors "as is all "free negroes "and mulattos" on kings land and that "no Indians "live in Robeson County area. They were never identified as an intact tribe that entered into a treaty with the US. They initially put forward an origin story that they were the descendants of the "Lost Colony." Then it was Croatan then a Cherokee origin. In response to the Southern White backlash to Reconstruction and the tightening of racial laws, the people now calling themselves Lumbee really began to assert their Indian identity. They petitioned for federal recognition as Cherokees. Then a splinter group began to identify as Tuscarora. Now they claim to be descended from Cheraw or "Siouan" people. Their claim of origins has historically been changing for centuries. The Lumbee DNA project indicates that the Native American element makes up only a small component of their ancestry (both on the mtDNA and Y-DNA lines). The bottom line is they are a distinct people with some small degree of mixed ancestry, but there is really no indigenous culture or Language that can be pointed to and definitely no "full bloods" around.The Cheraw origin is a new theory but has no scientific backing.The cheraw went extinct in the early 1700,s.The Lumbee in 2010 joined with a Casino firm Lewin Int.LLC to work on getting gaming and a Casino.
