Marker Text:
Sacajawea returned to her homeland in this valley in 1805 as an interpreter for Lewis and Clark when they explored these mountains. When she was only about 14 years old, she had been captured by Indians in Montana, where her people were out hunting buffalo in 1800. Reunited with her family, she helped Lewis and Clark obtain Indian horses and a Shoshoni guide to show them how to reach their Columbia River destination.
