So where else could we start but in the center of town. This is Wally the Walleye. He is mounted right at the end of Main street so you can't miss him. Fishing seems to be the big thing here but try to find somewhere to buy fresh fish.
Elsewhere in this small town is this double decker bus used during their winter events.
If you stand in front of Wally and look down Main street, this is what you see. Nice little town.
And they even have a sense of humor here, take a close look at the water towers.
As we moved out of town and drove for about an hour, we came across the Missouri River where Lewis and Clark traveled.
There were three tribes living along the Knife River which runs into the Missouri river. This area has a museum run by the National Park System.
This is a Bull Boat made from willow branches and wrapped with a bull buffalo hide.
The Indians used just about every part of the buffalo to make clothes, dolls, shoes, tools, food, and etc.
Here are some more articles that were displayed for people to touch.
Note the black hallowed out buffalo horn that can be used as a ladle, or digging tool.
The tribes along the Knife River lived in earth huts that could be as large as twenty feet in diameter. They would have two huts, one by the river and one inland from the river. They would change huts as the weather changed from summer to winter.
This is what on of the earth huts looks like, there were many in the area and you could still see where the ground had indented circles where the hut were.
Indian children play some type of game.
Here's a video of some Indian children doing a dance.
As we moved on there were some old churches on these back roads and I had to stop at this one because of it's name...."St. Paul"
