The mighty Missouri River! This is why Lewis and Clark were in North Dakota. They had come up this river! Then decide they better camp for the winter and built Fort Mandan.
After living in a 5th wheel trailer in a mild North Dakota winter myself I'd say that they made a live saving call😉.
Fun Day! Hubby and I finally got to visit the replica of Fort Mandan. We went on the quick 45 min tour where the staff open up the rooms and the grandkids could handle the items where 45 men lived in this small area.
The kids even played at blacksmithing for a while. Definitely worth the time. 🕛
Fort Mandan was the encampment which the Lewis and Clark Expedition built for wintering over in 1804-1805. That winter 45 men lived there with temperatures dropping to 45° below zero.
The encampment was located on the Missouri River approximately twelve miles from the site of present-day Washburn, North Dakota, which developed later. The precise location is not known for certain and is believed now to be under the water of the river.
#MakeItMandan tonight. Fun fact: it takes 7 minutes to get from Bismarck to Mandan once you’re on the Interstate. Quicker than driving north to south Bismarck. Mandan has great food, great drinks, and cool and unique downtown places. Fun fact: We have late night happy hour! From 10 to close get $2 off charcuterie boards, $2 off Escargot, $3 off absinthe and $1 off absinthe cocktails. So many cool places new places to try! #mandan#ramos#ginfizz#thomasandmoriartys

“Fourth Circle Finery” this piece was one of my favorite ledger drawing pieces from 2012 or 2011. It honors the beauty of the traditional fourth circle of our celebrations or powwows, the women. The grass dance societies from my home and people of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara nation play an important role within our communities to this day. Grass dance societies being the predecessor to the modern powwow have deep cultural significance. The first circle being the drum with the power of the thunders. The second being the singers who’s voices are the cracking of the manifestation of the thunder powers. The third being the male dancers, the warriors, the original grass dancers. The fourth circle being the women who’s life bringing power and feminine strength surround the ceremony of the grass dance. This piece shows the beauty and prevalence of women throughout our cultures, in particular the dance society I belong too, the Arikara Dead Grass society. Being raised dancing within our celebrations I feel the connection and power of our ways and was taught to respect my role and great significance as a woman. This piece will be available as a print very very soon. Watch for the launch of my new website to purchase! #Arikara#Hidatsa#Mandan#ledgerart#powwow#ledgerdrawing#nativeamericanart#nativeamerican
