South Dakota, constituent State of the United States of America. South Dakota became 40 State of the Union on November 2 1889. The State has two unique physical features: it contains the geographic centre of the United States, which is located just north of Belle Fourche, and it has its own continental divide, as result of which Lake Traverse, in the southeastern corner of the State, flows northward to Hudson Bay, and Big Stone Lake, in Minnesota border, flow southward to Gulf of Mexico. South Dakota is bordered by North Dakota to the North, Minnesota and Iowa to the east, Nebraska to the South, and Wyoming and Montana to the West.

Borlandphotolink / Getty Images State is name for Dakota Sioux people. It is situated near the centre of a region traditionally used by Sioux and remains home to the central population of that influential Native American federation. The Sioux alliance fought and defended the second - largest percentage of ancestral land on the Great Plains, feat surpassed only by neighbouring Crow people. Although pacification engenders confinement on reservations, Siouxs employ their relative isolation to protect their religious, linguistic, and other cultural traditions, often practicing them surreptitiously. During the cultural rejuvenation of 1970s, Siouxs were among the most active Native American groups in restoring their traditional practices. The lifestyle of South Dakotans in general has not changed appreciably since 1930, when most settlement of State end. About half of South Dakotans live on farms, in religious enclaves, or on Native American reservations. Adverse climate and economic conditions have caused rural - to - urban migration, and limited resources have forced some Native Americans to leave reservations. Education, health care, social services, and transportation have all improved since the 1960s, yet, at the beginning of the 21st century, many South Dakotans remain dependent on Federal support. Area 77 116 square miles. Population 814 180; 884 659.

Relief

Sioux fall, SD South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem announced Monday that shell be sending $200 million in federal coronavirus relief funds to city and county governments, but warned the economic impact of the pandemic could last for years. The Republican governor visited the state's largest city, SIOUX FALLS, to explain that cities and counties will be able to access funds based on their population. That means SIOUX FALLS city leaders can get up to $41. 5 million reimburse for what they spend on addressing coronavirus. State has received $1. 25 billion from the federal government as part of the relief package for the coronavirus pandemic, part of which the governor is still hoping can be used to make up losses in tax revenue due to the economic downturn. Noem said she was concerned businesses and tax revenue could be hurt in the long - term by the pandemic, especially after federal relief sent to businesses and individuals dries up. We are going to start to see the real impact of this virus in coming days, and we could feel it for up to one to two years, Noem say. She has said that the state budget that will end on June 30 looks to be in good shape, but that a special legislative session may be called in August to reshape the state budget for next fiscal year, which starts July 1st. The Governor will be touring the state this week, visiting some of larger cities to dole out funds. Her visits come amid what SIOUX Fall Mayor Paul TenHaken called an appetite, at least in SIOUX FALLS, for us to get cash registers ringing again. The mayor, who at one point during the pandemic unsuccessfully lobbied Noem to issue stay - at - home orders for the city, praised governors ' hands - off approach to business closures. He said the state was in a good position to recover economically. But that will also depend on the state preventing resurgence of coronavirus infections. Some states have seen spikes in cases as they roll back lockdowns. That hasnt happened in South Dakota, at least not yet. Health officials reported 29 new cases on Monday, while the death toll remains the same at 81. The state has seen a slight decline in new cases over the last two weeks. For most people, coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death. Noem said she expects the state to continue to see waves of infections. The state is expecting an influx of tourists this summer, development Noem has actively encourage. Visitors may be good for business and state sales tax revenues, but they also pose a risk to spread of infections. We are not do with viruses, she says, as she reminds people to wash their hands and socially distance when possible.

Geography

Much of South Dakota, with the notable exception of the Black Hills, is dominated by temperate grasslands biome. Although grass and crops cover most of this region, deciduous trees such as cottonwoods, elms, and willows are common near rivers and in shelter belts. Mammals in this area include bison, deer, pronghorn, coyotes, and prarie dogs. The state bird, ring - necked pheasant, has adapted particularly well to the area after being introduced from China, and growing populations of bald eagles are spread throughout the state, especially near the Missouri River. Rivers and lakes of grasslands support populations of walleye, carp, pike, and bass, along with other species. The Missouri River also contains pre - historic paddlefish. Due to higher elevation and precipitation, ecology of the Black Hills differs significantly from that of the Plains. Mountains are thickly blanketed by various types of pine, mostly of ponderosa and spruce varieties. Black Hills mammals include mule deer, elk, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and mountain lions, while streams and lakes contain several species of trout.
