Blackfeet Encounter

Episode 1 of 1

A BLACKFEET ENCOUNTER uncovers the rich history and culture of the Blackfeet people of Montana, traces the consequences of the expedition's arrival and investigates the struggles and triumphs of the Blackfeet today. In July 1806, Meriwether Lewis and another member of the Corps of Discovery killed two Blackfeet warriors and marked the only deadly clash between American Indians and the otherwise peaceful Lewis and Clark Expedition. A BLACKFEET ENCOUNTER skillfully pieces together this confrontation through accounts by tribal elders, Lewis' journal and interviews with historians reflecting both sides of the story. The documentary also depicts the tragedies and challenges endured by the Blackfeet people during the 19th and 20th centuries, including intertribal fighting, massacres, starvation, unemployment, poverty and racism.
