It is my understanding that the differentiation between Cheyenne style and Lakota style is the placement of the stitch relative to the previous lane of beadwork. In Cheyenne style, the thread is stitched through the hide behind/beneath the prior row. In Lakota, the stitch is placed in the same line as the prior row.

The Cheyenne style stitch placement tensions the new row against the prior row. This has the effect of making the beadwork less humped, although this is not the only factor determining how humped the lanes are.
