valuable relationships they forged with Native American peoples along

expedition that Americans ever took on, says Sgt. Willow of Oregon.

Rocky Mountains. We also met and learned from Native peoples, just
they did 200 years ago.

Theres no other story of America that is as grand as the story of
Lewis and Clarke, adds Sgt. Willow.
