The Intrusion of Strangers

How did Native Americans react to the arrival of the Lewis and Clark expedition? Here, learners review excerpts of journal entries that chronicle the arrival of the Corps of Discovery to the Shoshone and Blackfeet tribes. Your young writers will then construct a journal entry from the point of view of a tribal member, and share and discuss their writing with the class.
