  • 3. OVERVIEW Sacagawea is a Native American woman who aided the Lewis and Clark expedition with her skill in land survival
  • 4. CHILDHOOD Sacagawea was born in a northern village near the Lemhi river valley, known today as Idaho. While Sacagawea was between ten and twelve years old, she was taken to live at the Knife river area, which is now a part of North Dakota.
  • 5. INITIAL INVOLVEMENT In April of 1805, Sacagawea, her husband (Toussaint Charbonneau) and her child (Jean Baptiste) left their estate in exploration with the Lewis and Clark expedition of the newly acquired Louisiana purchase (828,000 square miles).
  • 6. ASSISTANCE To start, Sacagawea was mainly looked at as a wife and someone who possessed native language attributes. Later as the expedition continued, Sacagawea became of great value by supplying the crew with food from the wild. When faced with crises, she responded calmly. She saved many vital instruments and records of the expedition when one of the crew’s boats nearly capsized.
  • 7. ASSISTANCE CONTINUED In August of 1805, west of the continental divide, Sacagawea was reunited with her brother, Cameahwait. Cameahwait helped supply the expedition with horses and guides. Cameahwait’s generosity aided the expedition across the Bitterroot Mountains and through the Salmon River. In November of 1805, Sacagawea and the expedition arrived to the Pacific Ocean.
  • 8. FINAL DAYS After reaching the Pacific in 1805, Sacagawea and her husband settled in St. Louis, Missouri. The later part of Sacagawea’s life is not well known, but there are rumors that she died from an unknown disease sometime in 1812.
