I always thought that the Columbia River area was still packed with tribes when Lewis and Clark headed down it, and back up

The deaths along the Columbia from smallpox are noted in expedition journal entries by both Lewis and Clark. Their journal entries for February 7, 1806 report smallpox had killed a number of the First Nations. https://lewisandclarkjournals.unl.edu/item/lc.jrn.1806-02-07

This is a basic (but pretty good) synopsis of mythology surrounding the founding of America and the subduing of the native population.  It's informally written but well-sourced:


https://www.cracked.com/article_19864_6-ridiculous-lies-you-believe-about-founding-america.html?sr_source=lift_facebook&utm_source=simplereach&utm_medium=FB&utm_campaign=simplereach042015

There's a pretty important detail our movies and textbooks left out of the handoff from Native Americans to white European settlers: It begins in the immediate aftermath of a full-blown apocalypse. In the decades between Columbus' discovery of America and the Mayflower landing at Plymouth Rock, the most devastating plague in human history raced up the East Coast of America. Just two years before the pilgrims started the tape recorder on New England's written history, the plague wiped out about 96 percent of the Indians in Massachusetts.

The definitive treatise for diseases introduced to the Pacific Northwest and their devastating impact is The Coming of the Age of Pestilence-Introduced Infectious Diseases and Population Decline among Northwest Coast Indians, 1774-1874 by Robert Boyd. Being out of print it is a little pricey but the library perhaps has a copy. https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30663187493&searchurl=bi%3D0%26ds%3D30%26bx%3Doff%26sortby%3D17%26tn%3Dthe%2Bcoming%2Bof%2Bthe%2Bspirit%2Bof%2Bpestilence%26an%3Drobert%2Bboyd%26recentlyadded%3Dall&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp1-_-title1

Meanwhile, in South Dakota where the Sturgis Rally has taken place:

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities
