Focusing on the history, traditions, and material culture of the Mandan people, the documentary integrates historical imagery, contemporary interviews with residents of Fort Berthold, interviews with historians and research specialists, and ethnographic and archaeological data that trace 800 years of Mandan resilience, adaptability, and continuity in the Upper Missouri River Valley. It begins with a contemporary portrait of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara people and travels backwards through space and time, recounting the unspeakable tragedy and loss incurred by the construction of the Garrison Dam; the peak of Mandan population, power, and prosperity as agriculturalists and traders on the Heart River during the 16th century; and the origins of a cultural identity that is bound in memories of ancestors and inextricably tied to the Missouri River landscape. Running time is 77 minutes, widescreen format.
Lieutenant G.K. Warren's 1855-and 1856 Manuscript Maps of the Missouri River
This series of 39 oversized reproductions of maps drawn on the Missouri River provides insight into the natural and cultural environment of the river more than 150 years ago. They were created by surveyors of the Warren Expedition in 1855 and 1856 and used in the creation of an 1859 map of the Plains region. These original hand-drawn manuscript maps, however, have not, until now, ever been published as a unit available to the public. They contain a wealth of previously unavailable information about the Missouri River environment from what is now the Kansas -Nebraska border to the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers. Reproduced in a portfolio of map sheets measuring 16 by 24 inches, the publication includes an introduction by Graham A. Calloway and W. Raymond Wood.
"Twilight of the Upper Missouri River Fur Trade: The Journals of Henry A. Boller" edited and with an introduction by W. Raymond Wood. Henry A. Boller's four-year sojourn as an Upper Missouri fur trader continues to have a lasting impact on the literature of this great commercial venture of the nineteenth century. Literate and intelligent, Boller wrote with a sympathetic eye toward the Plains Indians, whose traditional way of life was rapidly fading along the frontier. W. Raymond Wood's dedication to scholarship in re-editing this valuable work leaves today's reader with a sense of humanity for those living and dealing with the Upper Missouri Tribes in the mid-nineteenth century.
