The Omaha Indians lived a little way from where the city of Omaha is located. The Omaha Indians migrated from the Atlantic coast through many states to Missouri. Many of the sects split at this point. Around the 17th century the Omaha mainly existed in Minnesota. Driven from there by the migrating Dakota people they settled in Nebraska. In 1854 they sold most of their land to the US government. In 1882 a reservation was established in Nebraska and that is where they remain as a tribe today.
