Inscription.  On September 25, 1804 The Corps of Discovery met under an awning near the mouth of the Teton (Bad) Raver with the Teton (Lakota) Sioux. A confrontation over the amount of gifts required to continue up river ensued, partially fostered by the lack of an interpreter. Chief Black Buffalo (Untongarsarbar) grabbed the rope of the pirogue, ordered the warriors away and diffused the situation.

Lewis and Clark relied on star charts and tools such as the sextant and octant to make their navigation of the uncharted rivers.
Lewis and Clark recorded 178 plants and 122 animals that were new to science.
