南達科他州因蘇族印地安人所居住的達科他區,為這片土地命名為「大平原之州」,又名「小狼之州」(Coyote State)。當達科他沿著第46度緯線分裂為二後,南達科他州幾乎與北達科他州同時加入聯邦。南達科他州主要是一個農業州,現居住在該州的美國原住民,還不到總居住人口的10%。南達科他州以黑山(Black Hills)的拉什莫爾峰(Mount Rushmore)上的兩座紀念雕像聞名,這些雕像旨在表彰美國的四位總統:華盛頓、傑佛遜、林肯及羅斯福,而仍在建築中的瘋馬紀念碑(Crazy Horse Monument),則是用來頌揚奧格拉拉(Oglala)部落的蘇族印第安人首領。南達科他州的州花是麟鳳蘭花,也被稱為五月之花(May Day flower),它的花朵是春天降臨南達科州的第一個徵象之一。


A Great Plains state, South Dakota was named for the Dakota division of the Sioux Indians, and is known as the Coyote State. Admitted simultaneously with North Dakota after the Dakota Territory was divided along the 46th parallel, South Dakota is mainly a rural state. Today, just less than 10 percent of its population is American Indian. South Dakota is known for two monumental sculptures carved into the Black Hills--Mount Rushmore, which honors presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt, and the Crazy Horse Monument, still under construction, which honors the Oglala Sioux war chief. The state flower is the pasqueflower, also called the May Day flower; its blooming is one of the first signs of spring in South Dakota.
