Population Description: The Cheyenne originally lived as farmers in areas of Minnesota and upstate New York. They were driven onto the Great Plains by more aggressive groups during the early 18th century; it is for this reason that the Cheyenne acquired guns and horses. This change caused a rapid shift in their culture from sedentary lifestyle and towards a lifestyle that was based on nomadic buffalo-hunting and horse trading. Today's Cheyenne are divided into two groups: about 4000 live on the reservation in southeastern Montana while 10,000 southern Cheyenne share trust lands in Oklahoma with members of the Arapaho tribe. Over 1,000 people still speak the Cheyenne language, which is part of the Plains branch of the Algonquian language family.
