Iowa Indian Tribe History (1086 words)
Traditional and linguistic evidence proves that the Iowa sprang from the Winnebago stern, which appears to have been the mother stock of some other of the southwestern Siouan tribes; but the closest affinity of the Iowa is with the Oto and Missouri, the difference in language being merely dialectic.
This does not accord with the general tradition that the Dakota were always enemies of the Iowa, nevertheless the name Nadoessi Maseouteins seems to have been applied to the Iowa by the early missionaries because of their relations for a time with the Sioux.
La Salle knew of the Oto and the Iowa, and in his letter in regard to Hennepin, Aug. 22, 1682, mentions them under the names Otoutanta and Aiounouea, but his statement that Accault, one of his company, knew the languages of these tribes is doubtful.

The tribe urges on appeal that the district court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to hear the matter and, in the alternative, that the contract upon which the consulting firm’s claims are based is void under federal law.
The consulting firm contended that the tribe’s suspension of the agreement was a breach of contract and filed a demand for arbitration based on the arbitration clause in the agreement.
If we conclude that the Iowa court had jurisdiction to compel arbitration of this dispute, which we do, then the consideration of the tribe’s federal-law challenge to the entire agreement (which contention was tendered by the tribe in state court) had to be adjudicated in that forum in order to resolve the entire controversy.
