NORTH DAKOTA, one of the West North Central states of the U.S., bounded on the N by the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, on the E by Minnesota, on the S by South Dakota, and on the W by Montana.
The E plains are drained by the north-flowing Red River of the North and its tributaries—the Pembina, Forest, Goose, Maple, Sheyenne, and Wild Rice rivers.
North Dakota is one of the nation’s least urbanized states; in 1990 about 53% of all state residents lived in areas defined as urban and the rest lived in rural areas.

 North Dakota Horizons -- Horizons Magazine, gifts and more
North Dakota has a new symbol of its heritage gracing the U.S. Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C. The dedication of the Sakakawea statue in October brought a crowd of North Dakotans, former North Dakotans and Washington officials to welcome this unique statue to the National Statuary Hall.
North Dakota formed a National Statuary Hall Commission in 1959 to select the person to be honored with the state’s first statue.
The name of Sakakawea was on the original list, and Congressman Earl Pomeroy championed the idea that a replica of her statue on the State Capitol Grounds in Bismarck be North Dakota’s other contribution to National Statuary Hall.

The Red River of the North (Red River) begins at Wahpeton at the confluence of the Otter Tail River, which originates in east-central Minnesota, and the Bois de Sioux River, which originates in northeastern South Dakota.

The Red River flows north through this plain to Lake Winnipeg because, despite the plain being very flat, a difference in elevation exists along the route of the river, making the line between southeastern North Dakota and Lake Winnipeg slightly downhill.
