Via Oregon.edu:

This is a project that builds upon a historic moment, the Bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, which was observed from 2003 to 2006. The National Park Service (NPS) made a great effort to bring balance to the record, adding tribal perspectives to what had long been a lop-sided “celebration” of the Corps of Discovery, one that had neglected the voices of American Indians. During the Bicentennial, a Tent of Many Voices was erected in many places along the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, and Native people came out to share their experiences and stories about life in that long region from St. Louis to the shore of Oregon. These accounts, from hundreds of “good people” from more than 40 tribes, were videotaped, and they addressed life since time immemorial, the period of contact, life after the European-Americans had cut a swath through tribal lands, and perspectives on the future. Many of these videos are streaming in open-access on a website currently called Tribal Legacy
