Sacajawea is well known as the Indian woman who led Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition to find the Pacific Ocean.
Sacajawea was born about 1790 in what is now the state of Idaho. She was one of the "Snake People," otherwise known as the Shoshone. She was stolen during a raid by a Hidatsa tribe when she was a young girl and taken to their village near what is now Bismarck, N. Dakota. Some time afterward the French-Canadian trapper and fur trader; Charbonneau bought Sacajawea and her companion, Otter Woman, as wives.
Contrary to popular opinion, Sacajawea did not serve as a guide for the party. She only influenced the direction taken by the expedition one time, after reaching the area where her people hunted she indicated they should take a tributary of the Beaverhead River to get to the mountains where her people lived and where Lewis and Clark hoped to buy horses.
Throughout the expedition, Sacajawea maintained a helpful, uncomplaining attitude of cheerfulness in the face of hardship. This was so remarkable that all the men who kept diaries commented on it.
After the expedition was over in the summer of 1806, Sacajawea, her husband and son remained at Fort Mandan where Lewis and Clark had found them.
