Mapping the Marias: The Interface of Native and Scientific Cartographies.
Belyea, Barbara
Great Plains Quarterly, v17 n3-4 p165-84 Sum-Fall 1997
As Lewis and Clark moved west across the North American continent, their contact with Native informants revealed spatial and topographic concepts at variance with their own "scientific" methods of cartography. The explorers' failure to understand and integrate Native patterns of geographical knowledge resulted in long detours where shorter easier Native trails were available. Contains references in extensive notes. (SV)
