The first time Lewis and Clark encountered Native Americans was on August 2, 1804. An interpreter, Mr. Fairfong, and a group of Oto Indians entered camp. Among them were six chiefs, and being that this was the first group they encountered things were tense. As Clark describes it, "Every man on his guard and ready for anything." However the next day the group returned and Lewis and Clark gave them peace medals, a flag, and some clothes to give to their chief. In return, the "chief all delivered a speech acknowledging their approbation to the speech and promising to pursue the advice and directions given them. They were happy to find that they had fathers which might be depended on, etc."

Lewis and Clark were Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) and William Clark (1770-1838).


During the Lewis & Clark expedition in the first decade of the 1800s, one of the greatest challenges on both the outbound and return voyages came from the Sioux Natives that were encountered. Initially friendly, if also suspicious, the Sioux proved to be easily aroused and prone to stealing and making threats. At several points, they in fact nearly turned violent, even threatening to imprison the expedition. Although the expedition also clashed with Blackfeet Natives at another point in its journey, this incident was isolated and not as full of ramifications as the explorers' various encounters with the Sioux.

Meriwether Lewis remained a lifelong bachelor and therefore never married nor had any children. William Clark however married twice and had several children. With his first wife, Julia Hancock, Clark had five children. They were Meriwether Lewis Clark, Sr., William Preston Clark, Mary Margaret Clark, George Rogers Hancock Clark and John Julius Clark. After his first wife's death he remarried her first cousin, Harriet Kennerly Radford. With her Clark had 3 kids: Jefferson Kearny Clark, Edmund Clark, and Harriet Clark.


William Clark named his first born son Meriwether Lewis Clark, Sr., in honor of his friend.


His full name was "Meriwether Lewis." Both he and William Clark did not have a middle name. He is not to be confused with Meriwether Lewis Clark, William Clark's son or Meriwether Lewis Randolph, Thomas Jefferson's grandson.
