The Corps of Discovery in Teton Territory
Navigating Narratives is the newest exhibition by the Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies (CAIRNS). The exhibit focuses on the eight days in September of 1804 when the Corps of Discovery traveled up the Missouri River through the land of the Teton people. It closely examines the published journals of William Clark, Patrick Gass, John Ordway, and Joseph Whitehouse through the amazing artworks of sounds, words, and imagery by over sixty creatives, half of them Lakotan citizens and the other half South Dakotan residents.
The exhibit opens at the Aktá Lakota Museum on June 19 and runs through October; with an artist reception and exhibit presentation on Saturday, June 24, 2023.
