South Dakota is located in the Midwestern section of the nation and its name is derived from two Indian tribes, the Lakota and the Dakota (Sioux). It has traditionally been a rural state with agriculture being the primary industry in the state. The five most important agricultural products are corn, wheat, hogs, soybeans and cattle; related industries such as meat packing and ethanol production are also vital to the economy. The largest city, Sioux Falls, has a population of only 150,000 people.
One of the most famous national monuments in the nation is located in the Black Hills area in the southeastern part of the state, Mt. Rushmore, which has the faces of four famous presidents carved into its granite face. The sculpture by Gutzon Borglum and 400 workers was begun in 1927 and ended in 1941 due to a lack of funds and the demands of World War II on personnel. Today the park is visited by over 2 million people per year and is an important cog in the state’s tourism.
