Except for a black 9% minority, concentrated in the northern
industrial areas near Chicago (in neighboring Illinois), Indiana's
population is mainly descendants of European immigrants from the
late 1800s and early 1900s. The immigration wave was later and
especially from the 1970s replaced by a migration deficit,
which shows up in rural and old industrial cities. Ca. 65% of the
population lives in urban areas dominated by the centrally located
capital, followed by Fort Wayne, Evansville and South Bend. This is
followed by a large number of rural small-scale towns, whose
conservative and sometimes even racist-dominated population
contrasts with the political attitudes that characterize the people
of the northern industrial belt.
Indiana's most important natural resources are the soils, which
on the central prairie plains consist of fertile moraine deposits
from the last ice age. The soil here forms the basis for a
mechanized, high-performance agriculture with maize, soybeans, wheat
and fodder plants in addition to meat and dairy cattle as well as
pigs and poultry. The agricultural products are part of the food
industry, which, along with other major industries (cement,
chemicals, steel, machinery, motor vehicles and electronics) places
Indiana among the top ten industrial states in the United
States. Since the 1970s, there has been a sharp decline for ia. the
steel industry in Gary and the automotive industry in South Bend,
and the majority of jobs are now in the private and public services
The prairie plains are replaced in the south by a small hillside
landscape with significant deposits of coal and lime. Here lies the
state's only major forest, the Hoosier National Forest, one of the
most popular excursion destinations along with the 1972 sand dunes
at Lake Michigan in the north, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
The present Indiana was originally inhabited by Native Americans
(Algonkin, Potawatomi, Delaware). The area was explored in the
1600s. of French, and in 1763 it came under Great Britain. After the
North American Freedom War 1775-83, it came under the United States
as part of the Northwest Territory. As the displacement of the
Indians opened the territory, which in 1800 gained the status of
territory, for the migration of white settlers; the first came
mainly from the southern states. The issue of slavery led to the
separation of the Illinois territory from Indiana, which in 1816
became the state and adopted a constitution which prohibited
slavery. Railways and canals linked from the 1840s the development
of Indiana close to the northeastern United States.
