From 1541, the region today called Nebraska was explored by the Spanish, with Francisco Vásquez de Coronado, then French trappers who have put in place a fur trade with the Indians. So it was populated by Sioux, Pawnees, Utes, Comanches and Cheyennes Indians.

Controlled by the French in the eighteenth century, territory was sold in 1803 to the United States, at the same time as Louisiana. Between 1804 and 1806, the Lewis and Clark expedition made it possible to explore a part of this region. Bellevue, founded in 1823, was Nebraska's first permanent colony. The colonization of Nebraska started thanks to the tracks that crossed it towards the West coast. This colonization was accelerated with the construction of the Union Pacific transcontinental railroad (1854-1867). Nebraska integrated the United States into March 1, 1867, as the thirty-seventh American state. Indians have definitely been introduced in 1880.

A serious agricultural crisis touched this state of the Midwest in the late nineteenth and century. Again very affected by the crisis of the 1930s (see economic crisis of 1929), the state's economy, however, renewed with prosperity after the Second World War, benefiting in particular from the construction of dams over Missouri and its tributaries, and from the exploitation of deposits petroleum.
