Dakota Indian Foundation invites you to explore your tribal ancestry! Through a generous contribution from First Nations Development Institute, our Foundation was able to employ Native American Youth to help develop the Ella Deloria Research Center.
This new Dakota Ancestry site encompasses early census data from the National Archives and is relevant to all Oceti Sakowin Nations.
Please accept our apologies if your tribal data is incomplete as our Interns are in the process of building this site. To begin, select the name of the tribe that interest you then click on the census for the year you would like to research:
