On reaching the buffalo plains and procuring horses, supplemented soon thereafter by firearms, they rapidly overran the country to the west and southwest, crossing the Missouri perhaps about 1750, and continuing on to the Black Hills and the Platte until checked by the Pawnee, Crow, and other tribes.At the beginning of treaty relations in 1805 they were the acknowledged owners of most of the territory extending from central Wisconsin, across the Mississippi and Missouri, to beyond the Black Hills, and from the Canada boundary to the North Platte, including all of Southern Minnesota, with considerable portions of Wisconsin and Iowa, most of North Dakota and South Dakota, Northern Nebraska, and much of Montana and Wyoming.This ancient name is now obsolete, having been superseded by the modern Ojibwa term Buanag , of uncertain etymology.They call themselves Dakota, Nakota, or Lakota, according to dialect, meaning "allies".The Assiniboin are a seceded branch of the Yankton division, having separated from the parent tribe at some time earlier than 1640.When and why the Sioux removed from their original home in the East, or by what route they reached the upper Mississippi country, are unknown.Among those killed was the Jesuit father, Jean-Pierre Aulneau.In 1745-6, the Foxes having been finally crushed, De Lusignan again arranged peace with the Sioux, and between them and the Ojibwa, and four Sioux chiefs returned with him to Montreal.
In 1689 he established Fort Perrot near the lower end of Lake Pepin, on the Minnesota side, the first post within the Sioux territory, and took formal possession of their country for France.
Although driven out for a time by the Foxes, they returned and continued with the work some ten years, until the Sioux themselves became hostile.
In 1736 the Sioux massacred an entire exploring party of twenty-one persons under command of the younger Verendrye at the Lake of the Woods, just beyond the northern (international) Minnesota boundary.
The Jesuit Father Joseph Marest, officially designated "Missionary to the Nadouesioux", was one of the witnesses at the ceremony and was again with the tribe some twelve years later.
Another post was built by Pierre Le Sueur, near the present Red Wing about 1693, and in 1695 a principal chief of the tribe accompanied him to Montreal to meet the governor, Frontenac.
