"The river of life still gives life to the people."
Keith Bear, Mandan storyteller

"Along the River" is a special presentation best suited for 4th and 5th graders in a personal, classroom setting or as an adult lecture and performance.

 The images on the education video are by Swiss art Karl Bodmer who traveled with Prince Maximilian up the Missouri River in 1832-4 and  painted the most compelling images of the N. American Indian before life changed forever. Along the River is about stories that matter and time-honored songs from one of the most compelling times in our history. 

“Along the River” is a  multi-media, interactive presentation of time-honored stories and songs from Gary's time and studies on the bank of the Upper Missouri River in  present-day N. Dakota. The program celebrates the 1804 Lewis & Clark  expedition and focuses on the untold perspective of the Native  Americans and the lesser-known moments in which Lewis & Clark  learned about the Indian music, song, and spiritual beliefs during the  time they stayed with the Upper Missouri River Mandan earth lodge people.
