The Lakota – Teton Sioux
with Arlie Neskahi
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.
