路易斯和克拉克遇见休休尼人 (Shoshone)

18058月时,路易斯和克拉克正在找寻休休尼族印地安人。部队(即路易斯和克拉克探险队一行人)需要马匹来穿越洛矶山脉而休休尼人有马匹。部队的成员之一莎卡嘉薇亚 (Sacagawea) 是休休尼人,但她在多年前被另一部落劫持。


In August 1805 Lewis and Clark were looking for the Shoshone Indians. The Corps (Lewis and Clark's expedition party) needed horses to cross the Rockies and the Shoshone had them. Sacagawea, a member of the Corps, was Shoshone, but she had been kidnapped by another tribe many years before.

The Corps were still recovering from their portage around the Great Falls of Missouri. Morale was low. Lewis and three men were scouting ahead when they finally met a band of Shoshone. They were the first white men the Shoshone had ever seen.
