Lewis and Clark Meet the Sioux

March 22, 2018

Storytelling of Lewis and Clark by Joyzelle Gingway Godfrey

On their expedition, Lewis and Clark knew from their investigations in St. Louis that support and cooperation from the Sioux bands was vital to the success of American trade with the Missouri River tribes. Their first encounter with the famed Sioux would be with the Yankton tribe. But Lewis and Clark were eager, and apprehensive, to meet the Teton Sioux, the tribe of powerful warriors who regulated trade on the upper Missouri.
