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.
