North to the Mandan Nation: Part 1
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4
The Bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition renewed interest in their historic voyage. The National Lewis & Clark Bicentennial Council selected several sites along the Lewis and Clark trail to host “Signature Events.” North Dakota was chosen to host two of these events. North to the Mandan Nation shows preparation and history that goes into making these events and the people who worked to make them possible.
This clip features guests weighing in on the significance of Lewis and Clark’s time in North Dakota.
