Lewis and Clark Pathways | Earth Lodges
Description

Gardening was central to Mandan life, as were their large earthen lodges.  Imposing dwellings of cottonwood and sod, the lodges housed an extended family and horses. As part of the matriarchal Mandan society, each woman built and maintained her lodge, into which her new husband moved after marriage.
