North Dakota became part of the Union as the 39th state in 1889. The name comes from the Sioux Indians Dakota division that lived on the land before the Europeans came to the area. The first known white settler to explore the area of the Dakota was Pierre Gualtier de Varennes, a fur trader and soldier of French-Canadian descent. In the western frontier, North Dakota was one of the very last places to be settled by people that were not Native Americans. Today, North Dakota continues to exist as a state with a low population.
The land in North Dakota has agricultural areas rich with grain farms and cattle ranches as well as some nice rural areas as well. The capital of North Dakota is Bismarck while the largest city is Fargo. North Dakota attracts a number of independent film makers to its largest city every year with the Fargo Film Festival. The wild prairie rose is the state flower and the state tree is the American Elm tree.
