A Blackfeet Encounter
Thu, Nov 8th from 9:30PM
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.
