Journey Of Sacagawea

Series Website »
The teenage Sacagawea, who with her infant son accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition, is an American historical icon. This program seeks the woman behind the icon and shows how cultures and events may have shaped her. The special goes beyond the sparse comments found in the expedition journals to the rich oral history of the Agaidika Shoshoni (known as the Lemhi Shoshoni), the Mandan/Hidatsa and the Nez Perce. Dramatic re-enactments and scenes of the wild areas in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming and Oregon that the youthful Sacagawea knew bring her story to life.
