    Sacagawea - Native American Indian, Image Inspiration. - Ideas for Sacagawea.

  • Sue Davis

    Stolen, held captive, sold, and eventually reunited with her people, the Shoshone Indians. She served as an interpreter and guide for the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1805-1806 with her husband Toussaint Charbonneau while carrying her son, Jean Baptiste, on her back. Sacajawea traveled thousands of miles from the Dakotas to the great water (the Pacific Ocean). In the journals of the explorers, they mention she was cheerful, never complained, and proved to be invaluable on the quest

    Hmmm Is she an Immigrant. NO FOOLS.... WE ARE. If you ain't native american-- your lineage came from immigrants. Sacajawea. Stolen, held captive, sold, eventually reunited the Shoshone Indians. She was an interpreter and guide for Lewis and Clark in 1805-1806 with her husband Toussaint Charbonneau. The explorers, said she was cheerful, never complained, and proved to be invaluable. She served as an advisor, caretaker, and is legendary for her perseverance and resourcefulness.

    This is not Sacagewea. She lived and died long before photography.

    Thank you Harry the Boone! Guess I was so enthralled with her story that I did not stop to think about that. Glad you let me know!

    thanks I didn't think of that

    supposedly she died in 1884. cameras had been in general use since 1839 so it is possible

  • Penny Richards

    Except that Sacagawea died 20 December 1812, in her 20s. Jean-Baptiste died 16 May 1866, at age 61. The 1884 date is rather fanciful, a legend that gets churned up now and again despite ample historical evidence for the 1812 date. Even if she was photographed in the 1860s or 1870s, she would have been an extremely old woman by then, not this young woman; and Jean-Baptiste was a grown man before a portrait like this was possible.
