路易斯和克拉克遇見休休尼人 (Shoshone)

18058月時,路易斯和克拉克正在找尋休休尼族印地安人。部隊(即路易斯和克拉克探險隊一行人)需要馬匹來穿越洛磯山脈而休休尼人有馬匹。部隊的成員之一莎卡嘉薇亞 (Sacagawea) 是休休尼人,但她在多年前被另一部落劫持。

部隊正從密穌裡大瀑布的運輸中復甦中,士氣很低落。當路易斯及另外三個人正在前面進行偵查時,他們遇到一群休休尼人。他們是休休尼人碰到的第一群白人。


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.
