TRIBES OF THE NORTHERN USA
# TRIP 4: ON HORSEBACK WITH THE CHEYENNE, NEZ PERCE AND LAKOTA
August and September (13 nights)
Connect with three distinct landscapes and cultures through fabulous back-country horseriding.
[South Dakota, Montana, Idaho]

Ride with three great tribes - the Nez Perce, the Cheyenne and the Lakota Sioux. Connect with their landscapes. Experience Native America under the guidance of expert Native Americans. Learn their culture from the saddle on their horses, across their lands and beneath their skies.

For two weeks you will be in the company of friendly guides, who will open your eyes to their horseback heritage, and help you understand the close relationship between Native Americans and the natural world. You will ride along age-old trails and use traditional horsecraft to give you an inspirational experience.

This adventure encompasses a wide range of activities besides riding, including visits to National Parks, sacred spaces and historic sites, constantly learning more about the ways and beliefs of the people of Native America.
