Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site

Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site is located on the Knife River directly north of its confluence with the Missouri River. Hidatsa and Mandan hunted bison and other game, but were in essence farmers living in villages along the Missouri and its tributaries. The site was a major American Indian trade center for hundreds of years prior to becoming and important marketplace for fur traders after 1750. Today, visitors can see the archaeological remains of earthlodge villages and experience the landscape where Lewis and Clark met Sakakawea on their journey west.

Knife River Indian Villages NHS is home to one of our five bookstores. To learn more about the site please visit: www.nps.gov/knri
