Summary

The Garrison Dam and Reservoir, a Corps of Engineers project, on the Missouri River in west-central North Dakota, has inundated the immediate valley of that river from just below the city of Garrison nearly to the Montana State line. Within the now flooded area were formerly located a large part of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, as well as the Fort Berthold Agency town of Elbowoods; the town of Spanish; and the communities of Nishu, Independence, and Shell Creek. There also were the remains of several important 19th century military and trading posts, many Indian village sites of the past several centuries, and some significant geological outcroppings and fossil localities. Because of this the Garrison Reservoir area was one of major concern in the Inter-Agency Archeological and

Paleontological Salvage Program.
