Fort Pierre, South Dakota: September 25-30, 1804

It was near the present location of Fort Pierre that the Corps of Discovery first encountered a group of Teton Sioux at the mouth of the Bad River. Unlike their meetings with other Indian tribes, this encounter was somewhat strained and confrontational, as were several others that followed over the next few days.
