The outcomes of the war between the Americans and the Indians was since the Americans and gold miners were digging up gold found in the Dakota territories, the Dakota Indians did not want to sell the land. So the U.S government issued an order that all Indians must go to the designated reservations. Also a team of troops with Gen. Alfred H. Terry were sent to locate and route the Indians while another team on another side with Reno were sent as well. Reno abandoned the plan to sneak towards the Indians and he and his men were killed leaving 200 dead. Custer and Captain Frederick Benteens troops were joined together and continued to fight. The outcome was American troops from the government overwhlemed the Indians and they surrendered

The conflict started when they had found gold in the black hills which now is known as South Dakota. The united states had singned a treaty which said that the black hills were part of Sioux Nation. Then the grant administration tried to buy it but they didn't sell it. Then they got mad because they didnt sell it to him. George Custer send some troops to the encampement of Sioux located close to the Little Big Horn River that is now known as Montana.
