About

Bottineau County lies in the middle and northernmost region of North Dakota. To the north, it shares borders with both Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and its history is strongly connected to its northern neighbor. The county, as well as its county seat, is named for Pierre Bottineau. Born in Manitoba in 1817, Bottineau was a renowned buffalo hunter, diplomat, translator, and trusted regional guide. He was of French-Canadian, Sioux, and Chippewa descent, reflecting the heritage and history of Souris River valley. From the early 1700s, the region drew French and British colonists, coming to make a living as fur traders and trappers.
