Sacajawea: Before Lewis & Clark
Transcript of Sacajawea: Before Lewis & Clark
By: Sophia Boughey
Sacajawea: Before the Attack
Sacajawea was born in 1790. She lived with her Shoshone family until the age of 12, when she was kidnapped by an opposing tribe, the Hidatsa. Her family led a normal life, and she had one brother.
The Lewis & Clark Expedition
In 1804, President Thomas Jefferson sent two men, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were sent to explore the Louisiana Purchase. They brought Sacajawea along with them to be an interpreter. She gave birth to her first child, Jean Baptiste, on this trip.
Sacajawea gave birth to her daughter, Lisette. She then died of a deadly illness that doctors believe she suffered from for a majority of her adult life.
Places and Pictures Dedicated to Sacajawea
The Hidatsa stole Sacajawea at night in a battle that took the lives of 4 men, 4 women, and several young boys. Sacajawea never did return back to her home land.
