Songs About South Dakota, The Mount Rushmore State

The state song is "Hail South Dakota" by DeeCort Hammitt. The Dakota were named after Lakota and Dakota natives of the Sioux tribe. In 2011 the population of the state was under one million. Economically South Dakota is known for ranching, defense and tourist attractions such as Mount Rushmore and the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally. During the 2008-2011 recession the state stood out with low unemployment. The region had been controlled by France until the Louisiana Purchase. A late 19th century gold rush and railroad development in the Black Hills brought more Europeans to the area. Dams on the Missouri River produce hydroelectric power. Other important South Dakota themes include Great Plains, Badlands, rolling hills, grasslands, buttes, coyotes and bald eagles.
