A Native American Perspective

The Lewis & Clark Expedition met two Indian tribes in what is now Idaho. One was the Lemhi-Shoshoni, of which Sacagawea was a member. The other was the Nez Perce, which provided the starving party with food.

Both tribes befriended the Corps of Discovery by providing horses, information, and friendship; and both played a key role in the success of the Expedition.
