HISTORICAL SKETCH

From July 1 to October 4, 1968, Peace Corps volunteers from all over the United States came to Camp Lewis and Clark for training and preparation for the Peace Corps mission to Kenya.  Camp Lewis and Clark was at the site of the current United Tribes Technical College (Fort Lincoln).  The three-month training took place in Bismarck, selected by planners because it was remote enough to eliminate distractions, and could also provide a culture shock to prepare the young men for life in a foreign country. As part of the training, volunteers were sent to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to live with families for two weeks.  This was intended to introduce life as a visitor in a different community and culture.
