North americA expedition
The history of the Native American Indian in North America is endless and rooted deep in the land. Since the first evidence of their ancestors inhabiting North America over 13,000 years ago, they have spread across every inch and grain of the continent, diversifying into many hundreds of culturally distinct nations and tribes - 881 in particular have been accounted for since their arrival over 13,000 years ago.
And each tribe and nation is unique in its own way, with its own unique culture and history. Therefore it’s very difficult for us to cover all aspects of Native American Indian history and culture in one expedition.
With this in mind, we have tried to put together a journey that is the most economically and cost effective way of seeing as many historical Native American Indian locations, and monuments in one trip. As you will see, we have predominately centred our Native American Indian history on the Great Plains Indians, such as the Sioux, Lakota, Cheyenne, Blackfeet and the Arapaho, just to name a few.
So here it is, the 7 locations we have handpicked and are adamant we will do whatever it takes to see before 2030.
1. Glacier National Park, Montana - Home of the Blackfeet, Salish, Pend d'Oreille, and Kootenai tribes
2. Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, Indian Memorial - A memorial for the combined Lakota-Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho force who died fighting for their homelands in the 1876 Battle of Little Bighorn
3. Little Bighorn River - The Battle of the Little Bighorn was fought on its banks on June 25th–26th, 1876
4. Black Hills, South Dakota - Hunting ground and sacred territory of the Western Sioux Indians, as well the Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Arapaho
5. Badlands National Park, South Dakota - Originally a reservation of the Oglala Sioux Indians, and site of the Ghost Dance from the late 19th Century
6. Wounded Knee Battlefield - A National Historic Landmark, known also as Wounded Knee, was the site of the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890 in South Dakota
7. Wichita Mountains, Oklahoma - Named after the Native American Indian tribe that inhabited the region centuries ago
As time progresses we’ll be going through each and every location in far more detail, sharing the history that is connected to these breathtaking and humbling places of the world, which you'll be able to find in our 'Blog'.
