Prairie People: A Terrain Well-Traveled. For the last 12,000 years, this region  has been occupied by native peoples. In the 1700s, the Assiniboine tribe  considered this area part of their traditional homelands. In the 1800s,  the Sioux, Cree, and Meti settled here. Today, nearby Fort Peck Reservation is  home to two separate nations of Assiniboine and Sioux. The waters of Medicine Lake and the countless wetlands that dot the prairie provided all that was needed.
