Preview

This chapter centers on the Indian perspective of the bicentennial and presents the views of Wishlow-too-la-tin, or Raymond Burke, of the Umatilla nation. It determines that these documents expand the Native American standpoints on the expedition that were collected in this book and provide a sharp corrective to the patriotic and univocal commemorations that originate in Washington, D.C. The chapter also describes the descendants of the people found in the journal entries of Lewis and Clark.

Keywords: Indian perspective; Wishlow-too-la-tin; Umatilla; Native American standpoints; commemorations
