The Community of Greenwood is located on the Yankton Sioux Indian Reservation on the southeast part of South Dakota. Greenwood is the first home of the Ihanktonwan people on the Yankton Sioux Indian Reservation. The federal government recognizes them as the Yankton Sioux Tribe. The community of Greenwood lies along the beautiful banks of the Missouri River. It has been home to the Yankton Sioux, since they were placed there in the 1800’s by the U.S. Government. About 30 years ago, it began to dwindle due to relocation of homes to the Marty, SD area, which is still in existence today. Greenwood Community nonprofit charity organization is organized to assist in the growth of the economy of the community and the Yankton Sioux Tribe. The Yankton Sioux Tribal headquarters has recently been relocated from Marty, S.D. to Wagner, S.D., 15 miles east Marty, SD after a flood condemned the tribal headquarters building in the summer of 2011.
