as I noted above what we think of as the Horse tribes of the upper Midwest were truly recent interlopers from the Great Lakes and Mississippi valley that were gradually pushed West by other bands who in turn were being pressured out by European expansion from the East
only real ancestral bands in much of the Dakotas were the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara of the upper Missouri valley that were a highly civilized group living in vast Earthwork towns and were primarily farmers
I place this whole question in the same box as Slave Reparations
after all you had Blacks who owned slaves and whites and natives who were slaves
