When one hears the phrase “Plains Indian,” it is very likely that he or she immediately thinks of brightly colored adornment such as clothing, bonnets, and horse decoration, or cultural activities such as buffalo hunts, warfare, and nomadic tipi camps. While these are certainly a part of the tribal history and culture of many Plains Indian tribes, there is a much lesser known culture: the agrarian or gardening culture of tribes such as the Hidatsa, Mandan, and Arikara (the Three Affiliated Tribes), and the foraging activities of other nomadic groups.

“History is extremely important in my culture and because of that, it is extremely important to me. This trip helped broaden my knowledge of not only my tribe but lots of the surrounding tribes as well.”-Miah Chalfant
