Description

A family on the Lower Brule Sioux Reservation in South Dakota is descended from Meriwether Lewis according to their oral family history. Using the event descriptions from the personal journal of Lewis and the material collected by Ella Deloria of the historical society of the Sioux, we explore the possibilities for such a liaison.
