I attended the Real Bird reenactment in 2004. Although I enjoyed it, it was very long and drawn out, beginning with events even before Lewis and Clark. But what made it so outstanding for me is the reenactment is done right there on the banks at MTC. What better place?
I had the pleasure to attend this event in June 1998. Enjoyed it greatly. After if was over, I was able to get up with Hank Realbird for a horseback ride. We crossed MTC and rode along the bluffs overlooking the river. It was a memorable event for sure. I would like to share a few pictures I took that day. Hope you like them.
Live Drummers were there for the ceremony and events
Here is the 7th approacing the river at MTC
Next the warriors raced across the river to launch their attack
The grand finalie !
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

"Even now, after a hundred years, his name alone will start an argument. More significant men of his time can be discussed without passion because they are inextricably woven into a tapestry of the past, but this hotspur refuses to die. He stands forever on that dusty Montana slope." Evan S. Connell, SON OF THE MORNING STAR, page 106.
