The Mandans lived in villages high above the bluffs that overlook the
Missouri River with the Hidatsas. They
didn't move around. They had permanent homes, and the houses were very
close together. Most of them were farmers, hunters, and trappers.
They always welcomed white men. They considered York
an unexplainable mystery. They made round boats out of wood hoops
and buffalo skins.
