It is also home to nine Native American Indian Reservations. South Dakotan's love recreation, and enjoy fishing, hunting, skiing and many other outdoor activities. The state is bisected by the mighty Missouri River. Dams along this river contribute to large lakes that are outstanding havens for walleye and salmon fishermen.
