Marker Text:
“I left our interpreter and his woman to accompany the Indians to Capt Lewis tomorrow, the Day they told me they would Set out.” - William Clark August 20, 1805 Lewis and Clark gave Sacajawea a miracle: a return home for the first time since her kidnapping several years earlier. She gave them as much: a Lemhi Shoshone interpreter and an advocate for the Expedition in buying Lemhi horses. It was a bittersweet homecoming. Yes, she was reunited with her brother, Cameahwait. But she learned that of the rest of her family, all but one other brother and a nephew were dead. She helped lead the effort to portage the explorers’ baggage across Lemhi Pass. When the path was decided, she followed it with her husband, son, and new friends.
