1972, the Sioux Village Settlement near Portage la Prairie divided
the two, therefore creating two First Nations presently known
as Dakota Tipi First Nation (IR No #56) and Dakota Plains First
Nation which borders the Long Plain First Nation reserve.
Dakota Tipi First Nation was granted reserve status in 1972, and
was located on approximately 25 acres. Over the years, the First
Nation has increased its land base by a further 346.8 acres, for
a total of 371.8 acres.
