|The Salish and Pend d’Oreille People Meet the Lewis and Clark Expedition
(Johnny Arlee Pageant)
|In spite of all that has been written about Lewis and Clark, one story remains to be told-how Indian people experienced the expedition and how later generations of American Indians have come to interpret the meaning of the expedition. Non-Indian historians do not dispute the key role that Indian people played throughout the course of the expedition. Prominent among the expeditions encounters with tribes was the meeting with the Salish and Pend d’Oreille Indians of Montana. On September 4, 1805, a large band of Salish and Pend d’Oreille’s were camped at one of the traditional places in the upper Bitterroot Valley of western Montana a place called in English, the Great Clearing.
This pageant seeks to show the culture and society of the People at the time of the encounter and the meeting with Lewis and Clark from the Indian perspective. Lewis and Clark entered an ancient tribal world, and the encounter cannot be fully understood unless we understand the world that preceded them.
This pageant was performed September 4-7, 2002 at the Arlee Pow Wow Grounds in Arlee, Montana on the Flathead Indian Reservation.
