Arapaho at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Plains Indian people of Algonquian language stock who lived along the Platte and Arkansas rivers in the 19th cent. Like other Plains groups, the Arapaho were nomadic, living in tepees and depending on the buffalo for subsistence. They were highly religious and practiced the sun dance. Their social organization included age-graded military societies as well as men's shamanistic societies. They traded with the Mandan and Arikara and were often at war with the Shoshone, Ute, and Pawnee. A S branch was long allied with the Cheyenne and fought with them against Col. G. A. Custer at Little Bighorn in 1876. Today about 2,000 Arapaho live in Wyoming and another 3,000 Arapaho-Cheyenne in Oklahoma.
