From the journal of William Clark::
William Clark, Sept 26th, 1804. I was met by about ten well-dressed men who took me up in a robe highly decorated and set me down by the side of their chief. … A place of 6 feet diameter was clear and the pipe of peace raised on forked sticks, under which there was swans down scattered. In the center about 400 pounds of excellent buffalo beef as a present to us.

Arlie Neskahi:
For thousands of years, the use of plants for food, medicine, tools, clothing, homes and ceremony has been an important part of Native American family and community life. Lewis and Clark learned of some of these edible and medicinal plants from the tribes they met along the trail. In time, they came to rely on them for their survival. Judy Bluehorse Skelton speaks about traditional herbal knowledge as we visit with Teton herbalists, Marie Randall and her granddaughter, Annie White Hat.

[sings] With our songs we call to the universe.

Music is healing. Mourning the loss of his son, Earl Bullhead discovered a song in the Frances Densmore Collection recorded nearly a century ago. It encouraged him as a maker of song for his people. On today’s Tribal Rhythms, Nico Wind presents the music of this powerful tribe, both past and present.
