Step into a reconstructed earth lodge and imagine boiling buffalo meat in a clay pot or pounding corn with a mortar and pestle. View the artistry of every day and ceremonial clothing, bags, and implements. Listen to memories of traditional Hidatsa Indian life, then walk to Sakakawea Village site, where earth lodge depressions hint of life in a vibrant village, alive with games, ceremonies, and trade.
