Sergeant Charles Floyd, August 3, 1804

Near here, the Corps of Discovery held its first council, making speeches and presenting gifts to the Otoe and Missouria. Communicating through an interpreter, members of the Expedition believed their messages were clear. But were they?

This meeting was the first of many formal and informal exchanges between members of the Expedition and tribes along the trail. The Expedition crossed the territories of more than 100 American Indian tribes. Oral tradition, passed from generation to generation within tribes, preserves their stories of the Expedition.
