Prairie chief in war Bonnet (Cheyenne - Arapaho) the Cheyenne Indians are interesting because of their migration form Minnesota to Colorado, a gradual drift southward for two centuries of more. When first observed in North Dakota, they were living in villages of earth - lodges similar to those of the Hidatsa. A few years later they were hunting buffalo with Plains Indians near the Black Hills. From that time on they lived in tipis and dressed and otherwise conducted themselves like typical Plains Indians.
