The westernmost tributaries of the Missouri River begin at elevations near 11,000 feet above sea level. Flowing downstream and eastward through Montana, the Missouri River is joined on the north by the Milk River, the Missouri’s only major tributary that originates in Canada. Farther downstream, the Yellowstone River joins the Missouri near the Montana–North Dakota border. It is then joined by the Little Missouri, Knife, Cheyenne, Bad, Grand, Niobrara, Platte, and Kansas rivers and several smaller tributaries, all of which enter from the Missouri’s right bank.

Most of its lignite coal seams that provided heating fuel became inaccessible. Wild game, an important food source, was greatly diminished. Oahe Reservoir submerged the river bottoms of the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River reservations. 160,000 acres were covered and 351 families were relocated. Up to 90 percent of the timberland and 75 percent of the corn land were submerged. As at Garrison Dam, the tribes lost their winter grazing and their wild game food sources. Big Bend and Fort Randall dams dislocated families from the Yankton, Rosebud, Crow Creek, and Lower Brule Reservations.

For example, by 1909, the Yellowstone River was being diverted in two locations. By the 1930s, most of the Missouri’s tributaries had one or more dams, diversion structures, or pump stations to store water or to shift it from the rivers and streams to arable lands. By 1939, federal dams had been constructed on the Belle Fourche, Milk, North Platte, Platte, Sun, and Shoshone rivers and their tributaries. Construction also was under way on a 14-dam project that would move 260,000 acre-feet of water a year from the Colorado River basin to the Big Thompson River of the Missouri River basin (Tyler, 1992).
