South Dakota separated from North Dakota in 1889, 15 years after the discovery of gold in the west. According to the treaty, the Black Hills area was the territory of the Dakota Teton tribe. The Indians were soon forced into conflict and in 1877 were forced to surrender their territory. Crowds of prospectors and settlers from the east immediately began pouring into nearby Rapid City. Between 1878 and 1887, South Dakota’s population quadrupled, which also helped create its own state.

In addition to gold, the Black Hills also offered quality pastures, but larger lands could not be acquired until 1889 further west. Initially, South Dakota was settled by cattle breeders, but at the beginning of the 20th century, a large part of the area was occupied by farmers for growing cereals. Drought and the economic crisis later reduced the importance of agriculture. Gold and silver mining is still important, as is the printing industry, and tourism is developing.
