即具乡村风味,也是农业一州的北达科他,境内拥有生产谷类的农田及牛只牧场。北达科一字源自于达科系的苏族印地安人(Sioux Indian),他们早在欧洲人抵达前,就已经定居在这片草原上。而"达科"即是朋友的意思。第一个造访逹科他地区的白人探险家,是法裔加拿大士兵及毛皮贸易商人皮尔高堤耶瓦伦纽斯(Pierre Gaultier de Varennes) ,于1738年踏上这块土地。北达科 他是最后几个由非美国原住民定居的边境地区之一,即使到了今天,它仍属一个人口密度低的州。北达科他的首府是俾斯麦(Bismarck),它于1889年添加联邦,成为美国的第39州。北达科州的州花是与其相得益彰的野生草原玫瑰。


Both rural and agricultural, with grain farms and cattle ranches, North Dakota gets its name from the Dakota division of the Sioux Indians who lived on the plains before the Europeans arrived. "Dakota" means "friend." French-Canadian soldier and fur trader Pierre Gaultier de Varennes was the first known white explorer to visit the home of the Dakota in 1738. North Dakota was one of the last areas of the frontier to be settled by non-Native Americans, and even today, it's not a highly populated state. North Dakota, whose capital is Bismarck, joined the Union in 1889 as the 39th state. Appropriately, the state flower is the wild prairie rose.
