4. Indian Tribes

The Osage

The Mandan

The Cheyenne

The Shoshone

The Nez Perce

These are few of the many Indians tribes that Lewis and Clarks crew encountered. But the most beneficial tribe was probably the Shoshone because they gave the crew horses to help them with the journey up the Rocky Mountains. Also Sacagawea was part of the Shoshone tribe and Sacagawea was probably the most helpful person on this journey with her knowledge of the land and the connections with the other Indian tribes.
