The area that is now Nebraska was originally inhabited by various Native American tribes, including the Omaha, Ponca, Pawnee, and Lakota Sioux. In the early 1800s, French-Canadian fur traders and later American explorers and trappers began to visit the region. In 1854, the United States government created the Territory of Nebraska, which encompassed parts of present-day Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Colorado.
