Lewis and Clark event puts spotlight on tribes

Montana's tribes will take the spotlight during the Lewis and Clark bicentennial commemoration in Great Falls, Montana.

"Explore the Big Sky" begin today and run through Monday at the Montana ExpoPark. They include table games, a three day powwow, a concert with Rita Coolidge, Jack Gladstone and the Black Lodge Singers and a market with tribal artists.

There's also a "American Indian Nations: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" symposium. Retired Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, a member of Northern Cheyenne Tribe of Montana, will give the keynote.
