Well this has been a challenge to find out where my state belongs.
This is what I came up with
The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition | Date: 2008
Great Plains extensive grassland region on the continental slope of central North America. They extend from the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba south through W central United States into W Texas. In the United States the Plains include parts of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas.
Map wise we are Great Lakes Region
In most written information the top half is Great lakes and the middle and lower half is Great Plains.So I'm in the Great Lakes region and Minneapolis is Great Plains. I know I'm no help.Didn't realize the state was divided.Just always thought we were Great Lakes region because we bordered Lake Superior
