南达科他州因苏族印地安人所居住的达科他区,为这片土地命名为「大平原之州」,又名「小狼之州」(Coyote State)。当达科他沿着第46度纬线分裂为二后,南达科他州几乎与北达科他州同时添加联邦。南达科他州主要是一个农业州,现居住在该州的美国原住民,还不到总居住人口的10%。南达科他州以黑山(Black Hills)的拉什莫尔峰(Mount Rushmore)上的两座纪念雕像闻名,这些雕像旨在表彰美国的四位总统:华盛顿、杰佛逊、林肯及罗斯福,而仍在建筑中的疯马纪念碑(Crazy Horse Monument),则是用来颂扬奥格拉拉(Oglala)部落的苏族印第安人首领。南达科他州的州花是麟凤兰花,也被称为五月之花(May Day flower),它的花朵是春天降临南达科州的第一个征象之一。


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.
