Nebraska is located on the Great Plains of the Midwestern United States. The state’s capital is Lincoln and its largest city is Omaha. Once considered part of the Great American Desert (actually a very agriculturally productive prairie land), Nebraska is now a leading farming and ranching state. Nebraska gets its name from the archaic Otoe words Ñí Brásge, or the Omaha Ní Btháska, meaning “flat water”, after the Platte River that flows through the state.
The state is bordered by South Dakota to the north; Iowa to the east and Missouri to the southeast, across the Missouri River; Kansas to the south; Colorado to the southwest; and Wyoming to the west. The state has 93 counties; it occupies the central portion of the Frontier Strip. Nebraska is split into two time zones. The Central Time zone comprises the eastern half of the state, while the western half observes Mountain Time. Three rivers cross the state from west to east. The Platte River, formed by the confluence of the North Platte and the South Platte, runs through the central portion of the state, the Niobrara River flows through the northern part, and the Republican River runs across the southern part.
Native American tribes living in Nebraska have included the Omaha, Missouria, Ponca, Pawnee, Otoe, and various branches of the Sioux. Long before the Lewis and Clark Expedition, French-Canadian explorers traversed the territory of Nebraska on their way to trade in Santa Fe. European-American settlement did not begin in any numbers until after 1848 and the California Gold Rush. On May 30, 1854, the Kansas-Nebraska Act created the Kansas Territory and the Nebraska Territory, divided by the Parallel 40° North. The Nebraska Territory included parts of the current states of Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana. The territorial capital of Nebraska was Omaha.
