Learning About the U.S. State of North Dakota

The state of North Dakota has both grain farms and cattle ranches. The state borders with South Dakota to the south, Montana to the west, and the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba to the north. It got its name from the Dakota division of the Sioux Indians and “Dakota” means friend. The first white explorer in this area was Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, who was a French-Canadian soldier and fur trader. North Dakota joined the Union as the 39th state. It became known as The Peace Garden State because the International Peace Garden sits on the border between North Dakota and Manitoba, Canada.
