earth-lodge settlement of the Hidatsa, Mandan, and Arikara
Indians, known both as Like-A-Fishhook Village and as Fort
Berthold Indian Village, was one of the important historic
sites of the upper Missouri Valley. For more than 40 years
this community was the chief remaining example of a distinctive
native culture. (Smith, 1972)
