        Lewis and Clark Pathways | Lewis, Clark and the Mandan People

        Lewis and Clark befriended the Mandan Indians and spent a winter with them in North Dakota. They traded with the Mandan to secure food for themselves. Lewis and Clark’s team included a blacksmith who was able to make tools, weapons and do repairs.  Ultimately, so they could have enough food, Lewis and Clark agreed to make battle axes for the Mandan with the agreement that they would not use them in battle.
