Mike, Roxanne and RG head to Ontario, Canada travel blog



Inside the earthen mound


We have to use the Magellan instead of the computer as the screen gets all messed up in a short time. We head off to Knife River NHS. No more construction but still dozens of large construction, and oil rig trucks. I don’t think anyone in this area drives anything other than trucks or SUV’s.

Knife River NHS was the area where five tribes had villages for hundreds of years, 2 Mandan, 2 Hidatsa and 1 Axitara tribes. They would like in earthen mounds during the summer on the ridge and in smaller mounds by the riverside in the winter. This is also the area where Lewis & Clark wintered in 1804-1805. Sakakawea was also from this village area. These tribes are now nearly extinct and descendants are living on the Fort Berthold Reservation.
