Meet the Blackfeet
Lewis and Clark as Told by the Blackfeet
Beginning in April, public television viewers will have the opportunity to hear and see one of the most cherished stories of American history from a different perspective—the Blackfeet. While exploring the only deadly clash between Native Americans and the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the PBS presentation of A Blackfeet Encounter uncovers the rich Blackfeet history, heritage and culture. Shot at important Blackfeet historic sites in Montana, the story is told mainly through the eyes of Native American historians, cultural experts, tribal elders and educators.
