The First Peoples were natives like the Omaha, Ponca, and Arapaho who lived in Western Nebraska for over 1000 years. Six tribes remain today. 

The first Nebraska peoples known as Plains Indians or tribes are descendants of succeeding cultures of indigenous peoples who have occupied the area for thousands of years. More than 15 historic tribes have been identified as having lived in, hunted in, or otherwise occupied territory within the current state boundaries. 

Peoples of all continents, especially Europe, started to arrive hundreds of years ago and continue to seek the Good Life in Nebraska. Today, along with the first peoples these arrivals from all parts of the world make up the diverse human population of approximately two million Nebraskans
