DAKOTA or DACO'TAH (so called from the Dacotah Indians or Dacoits - see Sioux), a territory of the United States, bounded by Minnesota on the E., Nebraska on the S., Montana and Wyoming on the W., and the British possessions on the N. It was formerly part of the territory of Minnesota, but was detached when that became a state. Dakota is in length 414 miles, its average breadth is about 360 miles, and it has an area of 150,932 square miles

The territory is watered by the Missouri and its branches. Dakota includes open grassy plains, high rolling prairies, and abounds in game furnishing valuable furs. The land is fertile and well timbered, and is rich in coal and other minerals. The N. Pacific Railway runs across Dakota from E. to W. The territory was organized in 1866; pop. (1870) 14,181; (1880) 135,180, without tribal Indians. (Excerpted from Chambers's Encyclopedia Vol. ii, Collier Publisher, NY, 1889.)
