Discovering Native Histories along the Lewis and Clark Trail

A three-week institute for 25 school teachers to explore the history of native and non-native peoples along the Lewis and Clark trail in Montana and North Dakota.

The three-week National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute, “Discovering Native Histories along the Lewis and Clark Trail,” will invite 25 U.S. K–12 school teachers to engage in a historiographical investigation along part of the Trail—from Missoula, MT, to Bismarck, ND. The institute will involve an educational journey of discovery to visit landmarks and meet with Native educators, national and state park interpreters, university professors familiar with that episode in our shared history, and be guided by a National Archives expert in indigenous historical records. We will study written and painted primary and secondary sources for what we can learn of Native histories, hear oral traditions from tribal elders across the region, read journals from the Corps of Discovery, examine Native and non-Native original manuscripts in the North Dakota Historical Society archives, view archaeological remains, and study three dimensional objects in museums.
