Join WPO readers to discuss articles from the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation’s quarterly journal, We Proceeded On.
Over the past few years, LCTHF and our Chapters have taken some time during meetings to acknowledge the folks who lived on the land we are visiting. We have said our thanks to those that came before us, and appreciate their guidance and assistance when it comes to planning and preparing.
We gratefully acknowledge Native Peoples who have lived on this land for millennia. Their dedication to the land and their communities runs deep within the hearts of those past, present and future. This dedication encourages the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation to continue developing, among diverse communities, an understanding of and appreciation for the commitment of Native Peoples to this nation and the significance of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
