Historical Context: The Black Hills War of 1876 ushered in the reduction of the Great Sioux Reservation and eventually through a series of treaties it was divided into smaller reservations. The 1887 General Allotment Act or Dawes Act provided for the subdivision of millions of acres of land communally-owned by the tribes. In 1901 the Rosebud Sioux sold unallotted lands to the government which opened up the area to settlement. In 1908 a lottery was established and the drawing was held on October 19, 1908.
