Description This living history program lets Sacagawea speak for herself about this pivotal period of our American past, using era-accurate costuming and props, a variety of native words, sign language, and anecdotes taken directly from the journals of the Corps of Discovery. Sacagawea is presented within context of birth culture, her adoptive cultures, her relationship with her husband, and her participation in the events of the Voyage of Discovery. Her story strips away Hollywood hype and common misconceptions to reveal people in extraordinary circumstances.
