Today is Sacagawea Day

Sacagawea Day
At the age of 16, Sacagawea, the daughter of a chief from the Shoshone Tribe in North America, accompanied the Lewis and Clark expedition as an interpreter as they explored the newly purchased Louisiana Territory.

The young mother traveled with her two-month old son, Jean Baptiste, and was the only woman on the expedition. Not only did she provide language skills, but she also aided the explorers with her knowledge of parts of the terrain as well as her ability to identify edible plants. In honor of Sacagawea’s important historical contribution, we are highlighting three books with Native American women as main characters.
